About this book

Language: German, also available in English

In this booklet, the authors take you on an exciting journey through the geological history of the surroundings of Lonyearbyen. Die Geologie von Longyearbyen starts with a short description of the development of Spitsbergen in earth history, from the days of the dinosaurs to the recent ice age with present-day glaciers, traces of former large-scale glaciation and permafrost phenomena.

Then the books zooms in on the geology and the landscape you can see in and around Longyearbyen today. As an example for the stratigraphy that tells us about the development of the regional geology, the authors use Hiorthfjellet, the prominent mountain that greets the people of Longyearbyen from the other side of Adventfjorden. Its mountain slope exhibits 85 million years of Svalbard’s history. The booklet is illustrated with many coulor photographs, maps and figures. Furthermore three excursions are suggested, depending on your schedule and circumstances (family excursion, excursion for mountain goats, excursion by car), each with description and map.

Summary in German:
In dieser Broschüre möchten wir Sie mitnehmen auf eine aufregende Reise durch die geologische Entwicklung der Umgebung von Longyearbyen. Wir beginnen mit einem kurzen Überblick der Erdgeschichte von Spitzbergen, bevor wir die Geologie und die Entstehung der heutigen Landschaft in und um Longyerabyen beschreiben. Die Zeitreise führt uns aus den erdmittelalterlichen Tagen der Dinosaurier bis ins Eiszeitalter mit seinen Gletschern, Spuren großräumiger Vereisungen und Permafrostphänomenen.

Als sichtbares Beispiel für die erdgeschichtliche Schichtenfolge dient uns der Hiorthfjellet, das große Bergmassiv, das die Menschen in Longyearbyen von der anderen Seite des Adventfjorden grüßt. Allein in diesem Berg sind 85 Millionen Jahre der Erdgeschichte um Longyearbyen aufgeschlossen.

Zahlreiche Fotos und Abbildungen in Farbe veranschaulichen die Thematik. Außerdem enthält die Broschüre Vorschläge für drei unterschiedliche lange geologische Exkursionen mit verschiedenem Schwierigkeitsgrad (Familien-Exkursion, Exkursion für Bergziegen, Exkursion mit dem Auto) mit genauer Beschreibung und Übersichtskarte.
