Based on an entirely redesigned concept, it integrates the state of the art geological knowledge of our planet at the turning-point of the XX/XXI centuries. This 3rd edition of the map intends to give a better global overview of the mega-structures, and the most important geological assemblages resulting from the complex history of our planet throughout 4 billion years.
The 1:5 Million International Geological Map of Europe and Adjacent Areas (IGME 5000), was printed in December 2005 and released in February 2006. This map, a BGR (Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources of Germany) product coordinated by Dr. Kristine Asch under the aegis of the Commission for the Geological Map of the World, is the result of the collaboration of 48 European geological surveys and the support of a network of scientific advisors.
3rd Edition (completed in 1990). Scale: 6 sheets in the set, (including the general legend). The compilation of this map was carried out by the CGMW Subcommission for Africa under the General Co-ordination of G.Choubert and A. Faure-Muret.This third edition comprises a detailed legend - for this scale - of the onshore formations. The offshore surrounding areas are mapped with bathymetry, magnetic anomalies and age of the oceanic crust, fracture zones, thickness of the overlying sedimentary cover, earthquake epicentres, and location of DSDP boreholes. Each of the 5 geological sheets comprises its own local legend, but the assembled 6 sheets of this map constitute a superb, attractively balanced mural document, and a valuable tool for both research and teaching purposes.
Reprint 2005 of the Second Edition (2001). Printed format. Co-publication CGMW-CPRM Geological Survey of Brazil-DNPM. This is the second thoroughly revised edition of the first one published in 1964. The map was coordinated by C. Schobbenhaus and was achieved thanks to the scientific, technical and financial support of the Geological Survey of Brazil (CPRM), and technical contributions from all the South American geological surveys, as well as the marine geology laboratories of Brazil and Argentina.
Published by the Geological Survey of Norway (NGU). The Geological Survey of Norway in cooperation with the Geological Surveys of 22 other countries, have compiled a pre-Quaternary bedrock map of northern Europe in the scale 1:4 million. For the first time the geology of both land and sea areas is presented for this large region. The area covered extends from East Greenland to Novaya Semlya in longitude, and from Svalbard to the northern coast of France in latitude, including the western parts of the Russian Platform.
A new map of one of the best preserved, best-studied young meteorite impact craters on Earth has been compiled by Christian Koeberl (University of Vienna, Austria) and Wolf Uwe Reimold (University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa) and was published – with a 40 page full color explanation booklet - by the Austrian Geological Survey.
The time slices considered in these two maps correspond to average temperatures of the surface of the Earth, 4.5°C lower and 2°C higher than nowadays, respectively. This first global environmental reconstruction ever undertaken using actual past geological data from late Quaternary, provides a sound basis of reflection as regards the very topical debate on the effects of global warming induced by the anthropic greenhouse effect. This cartographic synthesis corresponding to the real situation of past scenarios shall allow useful comparisons with the theoretical results from current modelisations. These maps were carried out thanks to the co-operation of specialists of Quaternary geology from all the continents, under the co-ordination of Dr. N. Petit-Maire (CNRS-Aix en Provence) and Ph. Bouysse (CGMW).
The Changing Face of the Earth is a synthesis of recent scientific research, initially intended for specialists in the Earth Sciences. Now adapted to a wider audience, and particularly suited to high-school and undergraduate students. The 11 maps in Mollweide projection, and accompanying texts, describe in a clear and didactic style the wandering paths adopted by the continental blocks through time, before forming the Earth's present-day geological pattern.
