4 Geology and mineral resources of Afghanistan

The book contains the first monographic description of the geology of the entire Afghan territory. The main sources used were the results of the twenty-year (1958-1977) joint Soviet-Afghan geological investigations. Account was also taken of the most well-known and important geological evidence obtained on the territory of Afghanistan by West European geologists.

The book contains introductory chapters devoted to a brief description of the country’s orohydrography and climate and the history of its geological study and the basic chapters devoted to the description of stratified and intrusive formations and the tectonic structure of Afghanistan. All the stratified units and intrusive formations and a sketch map of tectonic zoning are correlated with similar units distinguished within the adjacent territories of the USSR. The bibliography includes 445 titles of articles, books, and otherThe book contains the first monographic description of the geology of the entire Afghan territory.
