About this book
This volume presents an overview of the known and potential energy and mineral resources in relation to the geological framework and geohazard conditions in the Central American - Caribbean region. It contains 61 papers by leading geoscientists who have been involved in investigating the geology, geophysics, resources, and geohazards of the region and presented their papers at a symposium in San Jose, Costa Rica. The papers include assessments of oil and gas, coal and peat, and geothermal resources, as well as metallic and industrial mineral resources and geohazard conditions. They also contain recommendations to encourage exploration and development in the region. In as much as this volume provides access to a large body of previously unavailable data, it is of special interest to scientists working in this region and to those who would like to obtain an overview of the resource potential.
