Illustrated and bilingual (Portuguese and English), the “Guia Prático da Geodiversidade dos Açores” includes high-quality photographs of all the islands, with texts written by João Carlos Nunes, a volcanologist and professor at the University of the Azores.

As the third volume of the “Guias Práticos do Património Natural dos Açores” collection, this guide explores the unique geodiversity of the archipelago.

Filled with scientific information accessible to the general reader, the “Guia Prático da Geodiversidade dos Açores” describes the main forms and structures typical of volcanic regions, with special emphasis on the structures and elements found in the Azores, including the significant geolandscapes and geosites of the Azores.
