Present publication is a part of the GIS based "Atlas of the Lithology-Paleogeographical, Structural, Palinspastic and Geoenvironmental Maps of Central Eurasia" that was constructed by geological institutions of 8 countries as follows: Kazakhstan, Russia, China, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan and Azerbaijan during 1997-2001.
The Atlas bases on the great amount of hihgly analyzed and correlated primary geology-geophysical data (reports and publications) including drilling and seismic data. It employs moderngeodynamic concept. Oil, gas and mineral fields are shown on the lithology-paleogeographical maps and on the charts. Complete Atlas consists of 43 lithology-paleogeographical (non-palinspastic), 2 structural and 2 geoenvironmental maps of
Suggested hard copy of the Atlas includes 18 lithology-paleogeographic, 17 palinspastic, 1 structure, 1 geoenvironmental,1 tectonic maps and 280 historic-geological charts presented in a smaller scale. Short explanatory note comments on the Earth crust evolution stages within the region of Cetral Eurasia.
The Atlas has no analogs in the world practice in terms of detail presentation and regional size (7,5 mil. km2). The Atlas provides modern scientific base for further detail study in a sphere of geology, geodynamic, minerals and current status of the region environment.
Geologists, experts and managers will find this Atlas useful for geological and geophysical data interpretation, oil, gas, coal, uranium, gold, rare and complex metal resources forecast and evaluation, license option determination and environment impact cost assessment. University teachers and students may use it for regional geology and tectonic study.
