About this book

Here is the new edition of the first attempt to summarize the geology of Africa by presenting it in an atlas and to synthesize the stratigraphy, tectonics, economic geology, geohazards and geosites of each country and territory of the continent. Furthermore, the digitized geological maps are correlated and harmonized according to the current stratigraphic timetable. The atlas aims to contribute to capacity building in African Earth Sciences and to aid the initiation of research and enable the achievement of economic opportunities by providing a database of basic geological background information.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The aim was simple: to assimilate basic geological facts for each African country, in order to give the regional geologist a digestible starting point for future research. The book, which is printed in full colour on high quality, glossy paper, is in A4 format and organized into four chapters. … the book is very attractive to a wider audience and shouldn’t miss the office table community. The Geological Atlas of Africa is a worthwhile addition to the regional literature on African geology." (Daniel Paul le Heron, Geological Magazine, Vol. 144 (2), 2007)
