World Geologic Maps
World Geologic Map. 1:25,000,000. CGMW, Paris, 2000. A more detailed world geologic map than the Open University map listed elsewhere on our web site. More applicable to university and research insititutions and practicing geologists. This second edition has been entirely revised in order to show a clear distinction between sedimentary, volcanic extrusive, and endogenous dated formations. The geology of the oceans has been
updated according to the most recent magnetic and satellite-gravimetric data. Positions of the main volcanoes and meteoritic craters were added to the map. The new cartographic conception of the map allows a rapid visual reconstruction of the main plates and subplates of the global tectonics. Available in three versions; paper, Arc Info® cd-rom (for professional users), or GeoKiosk® cd-rom (for non-professional users). The GeoKiosk version is now out of print and available only as long as our supplies last. Assembled size is 196 x 100 cm (approx. 77 x 39").

World Geologic Map. Open University, U.K. An excellent single-sheet geologic map of the world. Less detailed, and less expensive, than the map above, this map is ideal for classrooms, laboratories, or meeting rooms.

World--Sedimentary Provinces Map. AAPG. 1984. Shows sedimentary accumulations more than 1000 meters thick. With 36-page booklet.
World Environments During the Last Two Climatic Extremes. 1:50,000,000. CGMW. 3rd ed., 2006. Two maps. Map 1 is the Last Glacial Maximum (ca 18,000 yrs. B.P.) and Map 2 is the Holocene Optimum (ca 8,000 yrs. B.P.).
The time slices considered in this work correspond to average temperatures of the surface of the Earth 4.5C lower and 2C higher than present temperatures. This is the first time that a reconstruction of the environment is made
using multidisciplinary data of the recent Quaternary. This preliminary attempt provides a serious base for ongoing reflections about the planet's warming due to the increase of the greenhouse effect caused by human activities, and that can be usefully compared
to existing modelisations. Available in either a paper edition or an ArcView digital edition.

World Soils Atlas & Maps. 1:5,000,000. 1981. UNESCO. A must for all pedologists. Nineteen sheets in ten volumes illustrate the soil characteristics worldwide. Each volume comes complete with extensive text; 6 volumes in French + 4 volumes in English. This set is now out of print. We have a few individual volumes left.
World Coconuts and Oil Palms: World Production and Consumption. 1:40,000,000. OSD (3275). 1992.

Mineral Atlas of the World - sheet 9: Europe and Neighboring Countries. 1:10,000,000. CGMW/NGU co-publication, 2000. This is the first published sheet of a series entitled Mineral Atlas of the World that follows the same map assemblage pattern as the Geological Atlas of the World. This sheet covers the area comprised between the Atlantic Ocean to the Urals,
the Near East and part of North Africa included, depicts mineral deposits of about 50 countries, and identifies 760 mineral deposits, a list of which is given on the left side of the map. Bilingual French/English, sheet size 96 x 60 cm.

Peri-Tethys Paleogeographical Atlas. 1:20,000,000 (at Equator). CGMW, 2000. This Atlas presents a findings of the Peri-Tethys program, a 5-year project involving about 250 scientists from 30 countries. The program focuses on the influence of the Tethys Sea evolution on the bordering cratons. This work embraces 300 Ma of the Tethyan evolution:
break-up of Pangea, formation and extension of oceanic seaways, and extinction brought about by the collision between the main bordering plates which led to tectonic inversions within the peicratonic basins. In English, 24 maps, plus 300 pp of explanatory notes.
Atlas of Tethys Paleoenvironmental Maps. 1:20,000,000 (at Equator). CGMW, 1993. This Atlas presents a kinematic reconstruction of Tethyan plates and microplates from Permian to Late Miocene times, with a palaeolatitude grid. In English, 14 maps with 305 pp of explanatory notes.
