      Evolution and Mineralization of the Arabian–Nubian Shield, Volume 1 presents the exploration for mineral resources in the Precambrian basement terrain underlying large areas of the Middle East. This book discusses the geological investigations of the tectonic evolution, structure, and metallogenesis of the Arabian–Nubian Shield. Precambrian, period of time extending from about billion years ago (the point at which Earth began to form) to the beginning of the Cambrian Period, approximately million years ago. The Precambrian represents more than 80 percent of the total geologic record.

        A shield is a large area of exposed Precambrian crystalline igneous and high-grade metamorphic rocks that form tectonically stable areas. [1] These rocks are older than million years and sometimes date back 2 to billion years. [citation needed] They have been little affected by tectonic events following the end of the Precambrian, and are relatively flat .

Quaternary geology of the Precambrian Shield, Saskatchewan by B. T. Schreiner Download PDF EPUB FB2

In terms of geology, Saskatchewan can be divided into two main regions: the Precambrian Shield in the northern third of the province, and the Phanerozoic Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin which underlies the southern two thirds. Since forming inSGS has spent countless hours studying the geology of these regions and documenting its findings.

The Canadian Shield or Bouclier canadien (French), also called the Laurentian Plateau, is a large area of exposed Precambrian igneous and high-grade metamorphic rocks (geological shield) that forms the ancient geological core of the North American continent (the Quaternary geology of the Precambrian Shield American Craton or Laurentia).

The book discusses regional terrain geology in terms of the evolutionary history of the crust, describing how the Precambrian Shield evolved from a stable continental region to a tectonically unstable zone marked by frequent high-intensity earthquakes in a plate-interior setting.

Indian Shield: Precambrian Evolution and Phanerozoic Reconstitution highlights unique evolutionary trends covering a period of over 3, million years, from the oldest crust to the most recent geological activity of the Indian Subcontinent.

The book discusses regional terrain geology in terms of the evolutionary history of the crust. The three major sections of this volume include six chapters describing the regional Quaternary geology of Canada, two describing the Quaternary geology and climatic history of Greenland, and six that review applied Quaternary geology in Canada, including chapters on paleobotanical analysis, geodynamics, geomorphic processes, terrain geochemistry, Quaternary resources, and the influence of the Quaternary.

The Precambrian rocks are part of a stable rock area known as the Baltic Shield (or Fennoscandian Shield). This consists of rocks formed during the Precambrian period, i.e. some time between the formation of the Earth about 4, million years ago and the start of the Cambrian period about million years ago.
