Regional Geoscience

The Regional Geoscience Division is responsible for conducting geological mapping and the production of geological map data, which are available both in digital and hardcopy format.


The Tectonics Subdivision is concerned with the stratigraphy and structural-metamorphic aspects of the oldest rocks found in Namibia, i.e. the Palaeo – to Neoproterozoic orogenic belts.


The Stratigraphy Subdivision deals with the stratigraphy, sedimentology and palaeontology of the younger Palaeozoic to Cenozoic sedimentary basins, including offshore basins

GIS & Remote Sensing

The GIS & Remote Sensing Subdivision’s task is the capture and compilation of field data acquired by Geological Survey staff or obtained from outside agencies, maintenance of the geological map data base, as well as the analyses of digital geological data for the production of thematic maps and reports
