About this book

The author, discussing the geology of the vast territory of the USSR, places the main emphasis on its tectonic structure, palaeotectonics, and the sequence of the main lithological formations. Stratigraphic material and, in particular, palaeontological proof of the age of stratigraphic subdivision, is not given in the book, lest it would make the book unwieldy. The reader is, therefore, referred to the extensive editions of the Geology of the USSR and especially Stratigraphy of the USSR, where exhaustive information on this subject can be found. As for palaeogeography, we advise the reader to refer to the four-volume Atlas of Lithologic-Paleogeographic Maps of the USSR and to the explanatory notes for the Atlas, Paleogeography of the USSR, also published in four issues. The reader will find a list of the principal general works on USSR geology, published during the last 15 to 20 years.

In this description of fold systemy, situated near Soviet borders with other countries, the author found it appropriate, for the completeness of the discussion, to follow their continuations (or intermediate links) on the territories of adjacent countries. The second part of this publication primarily describes the mesozoic and Cenozoic structures. An important chapter will deal with the geosynclinal evolution of the USSR and the plate tectonics aspects. Of interest to all geoscientists and geoscientific institutions, geophysicists, mineralogists, petrographers, geographers, palaeontologists, mining and petroleum industry, oil and oilgas industry, scientific libraries.
