About this Research Topic
In the last two decades, a significant effort has been made to understand the geology and tectonics in Africa and the associated resources and natural hazards by joint forces between African and international institutes. Currently, there is an exponential growth in Geo-observables over the African continent from both in-situ, airborne, and satellite observations. These observations are being rapidly utilized to push the African Earth Sciences forward.
In this Research Topic, we welcome interdisciplinary contributions from geological, geophysical, geochemical, geodynamics, and natural hazards-related studies on local, regional, and continental scales. This includes, but is not limited to, studies that bring new insights into unexplored regions or make innovative use of existing local or freely available global datasets and models to advance our knowledge about the geology, tectonics, Earth resources, and natural hazards of Africa. Research articles that utilize freely available datasets and algorithms that pave the way for the rising African graduate students and early careers researchers are strongly encouraged.
