EXECUTIVE SUMMARY


Jointly with the leading researchers and experts of Geology Institute and Geography Institute of Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences, Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Azerbaijan Republic, State Oil Company, Azerbaijan State Scientific-Research and Project Institute of Oil Industry ("AZNIPINEFT"), Azerbaijan Scientific-Research Institute of Geophysics and Baku State University there had been compiled a unique "Atlas of Lithology-Paleogeographical Maps of Azerbaijan" in scale of 1:1 000 000. This issue is the results of the scientific analysis of vast geologic-geophysical material and well data. It includes 44 color maps in age interval from Early-Middle Devonian epoch till the Late Quaternary period (Newcaspian age). In aggregate these maps reflect the paleogeographical position of Azerbaijan territory according to separate epochs and ages and, in particular, typical sections of the accumulated deposits, their lithological properties and thickness. There are also data on forms of land relief in some epochs and ages, geological structures, tectonic faults, volcanoes, glaciers, etc.


The specific features of the present Atlas are its complexity and self-descriptiveness that allow reflecting in time sequence the geological evolution nature and geological development history in the Phanerozoe of the studied territory. This Atlas will be your safe assistant during the process of forecasting and exploration of oil, gas and other mineral resources fields.


Below there are samples of some maps of the present Atlas.
