The compilation of this map was carried out by the CGMW Subcommission for Africa under the General Co-ordination of Georges Choubert and Anne Faure-Muret. This third edition comprises a detailed legend - for this scale of the onshore formations. The offshore surrounding areas are mapped with bathymetry, magnetic anomalies and age of the oceanic crust, fracture zones, thickness of the overlying sedimentary cover, earthquake epicentres and location of DSDP boreholes.

Each of the 5 geological sheets comprises its own legend. The assembled 6 sheets of this map constitute an interesting document, and a valuable tool for both research and teaching purposes.

High resolution scans in tiff, pdf and jpg formats are proposed in this catalog.
