Tectonic Map of the Caspian Sea and its Framing (completed, 2002)

Scale 1:2,500,000


SUMMARY


The present is compiled by team of experts of Geology Institute of Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences jointly with Lithosphere Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences. The map shows (in order with scale) the basic tectonic zones, their structural-geomorphologic look, thickness of the sedimentary cover and Earth cover in whole, character and degree of tectonic deformations and other elements of the sea water area and adjacent framing of the coastal part.


Recent geophysical data including seismostratigraphic as well (along numerous profiles) had been used while compiling this map. At present the map and explanatory note are in issue processing and will be published approximately in the first quarter, 2002.
