About this book

This is the first synthesis on the West African Craton (sensu largo) presenting the Precambrian to Late Paleozoic evolution in light of its origin as a part of Gondwanaland. Furthermore, correlations with such Circum-Atlantic orogens as Iberian, Appalachian, Brazilian are elucidated. The belts surrounding the late Archean - early Proterozoic West African Craton are described according to thier stratigraphy, sedimentology, deformation, metamorphism, magmatism, and recent geochronological data.
