Libya

The two most useful general sources of information on the igneous rocks of Libya are the geochemistry section of the third volume of “The geology of Libya” (Salem and Busrewil, 1980) and Goudarzi’s (1970) account of the geology and mineral resources, which includes a 1:2,000,000 geological map (Conant and Goudarzi, 1970) that is particularly useful for demonstrating the distribution and broad extent of the volcanic rocks. A number of pertinent papers are in the seventh volume of “The geology of Libya” (Salem et al., 1991)
