Geological atlas of Africa
This is the first attempt to summarise the geology of Africa by presenting it in an atlas and to synthesize the stratigraphy, tectonics, economic geology, geohazards, geosites and geoscientific education of each country and territory of the continent. Furthermore, the digitised geological maps 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.
Landscapes and landforms of Ethiopia
Paolo Billi (ed.)
Ethiopia’s geomorphology varies from highlands, marked by high volcanoes and incised by deep river gorges, to the rift valley lakes and lowlands below sea level with characteristic landscapes which are unique in the world. Landscapes and landforms of Ethiopia highlights all these topics including essential information about geology and tectonic framework, past and present climate, hydrology, geographical regions and long-term geomorphological history.
Natural resources in Afghanistan
Shroder, John F.
This book details Afghanistan's physical geography — climate, soils, vegetation, water, hazards, and basic geological background and terrain landforms — together with details of its natural resources, ethnic problems, and relevant past histories. It couples these details with the challenges of environmental degradation and new environmental management and protection.
