Title:Geological and morphological evolution of the Niger and Benue valleys
Author:Voute, C.ISNI
Book title:Actes du IVe congrès panafricain de préhistoire et de l'étude quaternaire
Geographic term:Nigeria
Abstract:Geological and morphological features observed in the Niger and Benue valleys on Nigerian territory have been compared with data from the upper Benue area, Logone valley and Chad basin in the Cameroons. An outline of the Niger is given including the influence of tectonic movements, sea level oscillations and climatic variations. A provisional stratigraphy of the various stages has been attempted, based on a correlation with the Pleistocene stratigraphy established for parts of Africa.
