Open-File Report 2006-1370
This report describes an accompanying database of geoscientific references for the country of Afghanistan. The reference compilation is part of a larger joint study of Afghanistan’s energy, mineral, and water resources, and geologic hazards, currently underway by the U.S. Geological Survey, the British Geological Survey, and the Afghanistan Geological Survey.
The compilation of geoscientific references was initially planned to contain only mineral-resource-related references. However, the effort soon grew to encompass references related to water resources, energy resources, and geologic hazards. It is emphasized that this is an on-going work in progress and that the present database is incomplete. A second version of the reference database is planned for future release, and will include all geology-oriented references of Afghanistan.
