Notes Explanatary notes by Philippe Bouysse (CGMW).
Summary The Earth Geological Globe is based on the revised 3rd edition of the Geological Map of the World, originally drawn at the scale of 1:25 million, published in 2014 by the Commission of the Geological Map of the World (CGMW). It integrates the state of the art of the geological knowledge of our planet at the turning-point of the XX/XXI centuries. This work is a synthetic compilation basically aimed at educational purposes and constitutes an attempt at representing a simplified geology of the continents and oceans of our planet in its entirety. This representation, enhanced by a shaded physiographic base more attenuate in the continents than in the oceans, is the only one existing today that presents the world geological setting at a glance. There is a clearly distinguishable contrast between the continents -where rocks may attain an age up to nearly 4 billion years- and the oceanic crust, not exceeding 200 million years.
