Seventy-six full-colour maps with text present the geological characteristics of Ukraine in this translation of an atlas first prepared by scholars at the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences' Institue of Geology in 2001. Widely acclaimed in its country of origin, An Atlas of the Geology and Mineral Deposits of Ukraine includes up-to-date geological concepts, as well as ecological, historical, and prehistoric items of interest.

The seventy-six maps are grouped into seven categories: general data, geophysical, structural, geological 'slice,' lithological, ecological, hydrological, and mineralogical. Ukraine has for some time been known as a country rich in mineral resources; as a result, maps depicting its vast mineral deposits as well as its oil, gas, and coal deposits may be of particular interest to foreign readers.
