abstract
Abstract not available. These are final, scientifically edited, complex, multicoloured maps, georeferenced interpretation, and selected data from a science project in any part of Earth Sciences Sector, e.g. GSC, CCRS, etc. They are all critically reviewed by two specialists. The series is geared towards specialists (mining industry, land-use planning, geoscience students) rather than the general public.
