The Dharwar Craton, one of the parts of the Indian shield, is estimated to be 3 billion years old -- one of the oldest continental fragments in the world. This book surveys the Precambrian geology of peninsular India and, to some extent, the Himalayas. The authors discuss the similarities and differences between the crustal blocks of the shield and incorporate details concerning . to the complex geology of the New Jersey Highlands and provided both constructive criticism and new ideas about bedrock mapping in this Precambrian e.

This Precambrian geology book is the first contribution to the overview of Precambrian geology of China. It covers Precambrian geology of the North China Craton, the South China Craton, and the Tarim Craton, as well as other smaller blocks in the Chinese orogenic belts.

The Precambrian (or Pre-Cambrian, sometimes abbreviated pЄ, or Cryptozoic) is the earliest part of Earth's history, set before the current Phanerozoic Eon.

The Precambrian is so named because it preceded the Cambrian, the first period of the Phanerozoic eon, which is named after Cambria, the Latinised name for Wales, where rocks from this age were first studied.

This wide-ranging discussion of Precambrian rocks includes contributions from a diverse array of authors actively engaged in investigations of various aspects of U.S. Precambrian geology.

Summary discussions by the editors of the five major chapters place these contributions in a logical regional framework.

This two-volume set provides the first comprehensive account in English of the geology of Central Europe. Written by more than scientists from universities and research centres spread across Europe and North America, the 21 chapters are based on the main stratigraphic periods.

Individual chapters outline the evolution of the region divided into a variety of sections which 4/5(1). Focusing on the Precambrian in the central part of the Fennoscandian Shield, the book combines the results from modern geological and geophysical research into a detailed petrologic, lithologic, and structural synthesis and interpretation of the Archean and Proterozoic of Finland.

It will be of value to anyone interested in the evolution of the shield in particular and in Precambrian.
