Item description for Geological Atlas of Africa: With Notes on Stratigraphy, Tectonics, Economic Geology, Geohazards, Geosites and Geoscientific Education of Each Country by Thomas Schluter & Martin H. Trauth...
This is the first attempt to summarise the geology of Africa by presenting it in an atlas and to synthesise the stratigraphy, tectonics, economic geology, geohazards, geosites and geoscientific education of each country and territory of the continent. Furthermore, the digitised geological maps (on the attached CD-ROM) are correlated and harmonised according to the current stratigraphic time table. The atlas aims to contribute to capacity building in African Earth Sciences and to initiate research and economic opportunities by providing a database of basic geological background information.

A valuable new book on Africa Mar 11, 2007
This a very good collection of maps and descriptions for each African country. The regional geology is generally well described and obviously represents the best consesus and data available. The economic geology is occasionly a bit generic and doesn't cover recent exploration activities in Africa. The hazard and sites descriptions are a bit so so due to lack of data in many cases. The continental review is also usefull (14 pages).
