Unique book covering Uganda's geology in full colour
Of great national and international interest
Includes a new 1:1 million scale geological map of Uganda
The book covers all geological and geoscience data produced to date in Uganda. In a regional and historical approach to the Geology of Uganda it includes references to the work of early geologists. Applied geoscience topics such as mineral deposits, environmental and engineering geology are included generally within the regional framework and are internally referenced. Of particular interest are the new data on the Western (Albertine) Rift generated by the recent oil discoveries and the large number of papers produced on the nature of the crust and kinematics leading to the evolution of the unique Ruwenzori horst block. The book will also tap into the completed mapping coverage available from the inter-bank multinational geological programme operating in Uganda since 2005 and due for final reporting by mid-2012. A new 1:1 million scale digital geological map of Uganda specifically matches terminology used in the book, and sets, together with the text, a standard for geological research.
