Over much of the surface of Ghana, the rocks are weathered, and great spreads of crust that produced the basic geologic structure of the country have now virtually ceased, periodic earthquakes occur, especially near Accra along the eastern foot of the Akwapim-Togo Ranges, where there is a major fault line.
Throughout the country, weathering, leaching, and the formation of laterite hardpans (hard, impervious layers composed chiefly of iron and aluminum oxides cemented by relatively insoluble materials) by capillary movement (the movement of water containing mineral salts to the surface) and evaporation are common processes that vary in importance according to the characteristics of each locality.
These ranges are part of the , which are underlain by some of the oldest Precambrian rocks known—mostly gneisses (coarse-grained rocks in which bands containing granular minerals alternate with bands containing micaceous minerals); in places they rise above the surface to form inselbergs (prominent steep-sided hills left after erosion).
99% profiles are fake,created by young teenage "GUYS" at their local internet cafe! Some asked for money up front like for money making schemes. while Ghana is probobly at the bottom of pit ugliness !!
, i am sorry to say but since you see it fit to scam us pretending to some chic from Europe then i am going to tell it like it is !
I have been on matchcom and lately I have been getting a lot of e mails from Ghana. Never one on a weekend, I usually had to write first.
The frist one was suspicious but I wrote back stating I had no money to send. Finally I pulled the plug and that is when I got flooded with e mails from Ghana. They are good at removing a suspicious profile when there members complain about it.
Although relatively small in area and population, Ghana is one of the leading countries of Africa, partly because of its considerable natural wealth and partly because it was the first black African country south of the In addition to being known for its lush forests, diverse animal life, and miles of sandy beaches along a picturesque coast, Ghana is also celebrated for its rich history—its habitation possibly dating from 10,000 —and as a fascinating repository of cultural heritage.
The country takes it name from the great medieval trading empire that was located northwest of the modern-day state until its demise in the 13th century.
The intervening coastal zone between eastern and western extremes contains patches of Devonian sediments (about 360 to 415 million years old).
With the older and more resistant rocks of the Precambrian peneplain, these form a low, picturesque coastline of sandy bays and rocky promontories. Along the coast are numerous lagoons, most of them formed at the mouths of small streams.
