Books Info:

Encyclopedia of European and Asian Regional Geology free pdf Organized alphabetically by country, this volume provides an overview of the general geology of Europe and Asia, excluding the Arab countries and Israel. Articles primarily contain information about the stratigraphy, structure, tectonics and natural resources of each country, as well as a history of geological exploration and other issues unique to each country. Additional articles cover international subjects such as Europe, Asia, the Alps, Caucasus, Himalayas and Tien Shan mountains. Many articles are new syntheses, such as those on Iceland, Burma, Philippines- some are first-time descriptions in English, such as those on Estonia, Moldova, Bosnia, and Turkmenistan- and others are published for the first time ever in any language, such as articles on Italy, Korea and Vietnam. Each entry is written by a native geologist or a geologist with extensive experience in the region, and entries include representative figures illustrating main geologic features and a selected bibliography of relevant publications generally accessible in libraries. Articles are written assuming some general geologic background. The book should serve as a reference for academic and professional personnel in industrial exploration firms and governmental agencies, as well as for university students.
