About this book

Language: German

The continent of Europe, as a recognisable geographic entity, attained roughly its present shape around 20 million years ago. Even since then, the European coastline has undergone significant changes, due mainly to sea-level movements. Graham Park relates how Europe has been assembled through geological time by the accretion of various distinct geological components, some of which have travelled a considerable distance across the globe to reach their present positions.

This is a book for all those curious about the shape, variety and origins of the continent of Europe. How did it come to adopt the shapes shown on maps? Why are there such distinct regions and landscapes, ranging from the wide plains of Northern Europe to the mountains of the South? Copiously illustrated in colour, with technical terms kept to a minimum, Die Geologie Europas will educate and inform all those who travel in Europe and those interested in the study of geology.

Summary in German:
Wie und wann bildete sich die weiße Kreideküste von Dover, wie entstanden die schroffen Gipfel der Alpen oder des Urals? Welche Prozesse formten die Fjordküsten in Skandinavien oder die osteuropäischen Ebenen? Kompakt und verständlich erklärt Graham Park, wie der Kontinent Europa entstand. Chronologisch führt er durch die geologischen Ereignisse, die Europa im Laufe der Erdgeschichte formten, und macht deutlich, wie die unterschiedlichen Regionen und Landschaften entstanden.

Das Buch besticht durch seine moderne Aufmachung und anschauliche Darstellung mit vielen farbigen Illustrationen, Fotos und Übersichtskarten. Fachtermini werden in einem Glossar erläutert und wichtige geologische Konzepte in der Einleitung erklärt. Durch seine anschauliche Darstellung und kompakte Gliederung eignet sich dieses neue Standardwerk auch ausgezeichnet für Einsteiger in die Thematik.
