Africa covers a larger land area than the USA, Europe, India and the ASEAN nations put together. It is rich in natural resources, including oil, gas, coal and nearly every metalliferous mineral. Yet Africa is still one of the least explored continents. This book brings together in one volume, concise reviews of basins previously documented in a vast array of diffuse literature. It also includes less well-known basins such as the onshore Owambo, Iullemmeden, and Sudanese rift basins, and the offshore basins of southern Africa. The contributions are by authors, and teams of authors, with knowledge and experience of the basins that they describe. The book is illustrated with maps, cross-sections, stratigraphic sections and seismic lines, and each chapter inlcudes a comprehensive bibliography. This title should be of value to geologists researching the geology of Africa, and for industrial geologists seeking natural resources within African sedimentary rocks.
