About: The Roadside Geology of Namibia

This Roadside Geology Guide of Namibia has been prepared on response to a growing demand for geological information. The guide provides a general introduction into the geological development of southern Africa and Namibia in particular, followed by general chapters on mineralogy, palaeontology, hydrogeology and mining. Special geological attractions of Namibia are then described in detail, followed by detailed route descriptions of 29 routes throughout the entire country. They are presented in a radial fashion, starting with routes from the central part of the country towards the west, followed by southern and eastern Namibia and ending with the northern routes. The route descriptions are accompanied by geological maps as well as stratigraphic diagrams. In this second, revised edition, text, figures and cover have been corrected and optimized to again increase the high quality of this valuable field guide.
