The call for the next WP-A “Field Geoscientific Mapping” training is now open. This upcoming training will take place in Windhoek & Karibib, Namibia from August 31 to 28 September 2022 in English and Portuguese.
The WP-A Field Geoscientific Mapping aims to implement geological, GIS (Geographic Information System) and organisational techniques from preparation phase to finalisation of geological map and explanatory notes in the conditions of the African Geological Surveys. This training aims to do practical exercise on field techniques used during the geological mapping, collecting of data, interpreting petrological, geochemical, geophysical, structural, stratigraphic and geochronological data in terms of compiling geological map, summarising the data and preparation of geological map. Remote sensing principles and digital data handling will be included in an abridged practical form.
The WP-A Field Geoscientific Mapping aims to raise level of skills of African staff in terms of field geology mapping so as to African geologists can make geological maps to finally better cover the continent at different scales with own good-quality data. Thus, modern geological maps at multiple scales will match with requirements of potential investors of the public and private sectors, especially in the field of mining, exploration and agriculture.
PanAfGeo is an unprecedented pan-African training programme. The programme is led by European and African Geological Surveys, and therefore combines the variety of European Geological Surveys (EGS) to the variety of African Surveys, making this a unique training offer.
