For geoscientists, Namibia has always been a country of particular interest. The greatly varied geological structures make the earth history of this region like an open book — all that remains is to read it.
Many of the grandiose landscape pictures imprinted into the country were formed over millions of years, even up to 2000 million years ago. ln view of the time dimensions of earth history humans can view their own time span in a new light.
This travel guide was written to make the features and particularities of Namibian geology and the fascination, which can be derived from it, accessible to visitors and also to the interested laymen. The book gives the necessary basic knowledge in an easily understandable form and describes the geological attractions of Namibia, which can be seen en route. To experts on the country, it also offers a detailed overview, which was previously not available in this form.
This book is also available in German.
