Geological Atlas of Africa: With Notes on Stratigraphy, by Thomas Schlüter

By Thomas Schlüter

Here's the hot version of the first try to summarize the geology of Africa through proposing it in an atlas and to synthesize the stratigraphy, tectonics, financial geology, geohazards and geosites of every state and territory of the continent. moreover, the digitized geological maps are correlated and harmonized in accordance with the present stratigraphic timetable. The atlas goals to give a contribution to means development in African Earth Sciences and to assist the initiation of research and let the fulfillment of monetary possibilities by way of supplying a database of easy geological heritage details.
