MetadataShow full item record
The object of these notes is to give brief explanations of the major landforms and geological structures which may be seen from the bus during the field trip to the eastern part of Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe forms part of the African Shield, which consists of old and rigid rocks, and it is only in the Eastern Highlands that extensive folding may be seen. Faulting is, however, common in many parts of the country and there are numerous examples of features which have been derived from intrusive igneous rocks.
