About this book

Language: Dutch

How did Suriname come into existence? What is the origin of its rocks, landscapes, mineral resources, agricultural land, and coast? Why is gold found in eastern Suriname, but not in the west? Why is the Voltzberg round, and the Brownsberg flat? Where can you find bauxite, and where oil, and why can't you find it elsewhere? How are sandy savannahs formed? And why is the coastline changing so quickly?

All of these are questions that relate to the geological formation of land. A history that started two billion years ago during the formation of the Trans-Amazonian mountain chain. This is the first Dutch book to explain for a general audience how the subterranean formations, surface landscape, and mineral resources of Suriname were formed.

Summary in Dutch:
Hoe is Suriname ontstaan? Wat is de oorsprong van haar gesteenten, haar landschappen, haar delfstoffen, haar landbouwgronden, haar kust? Waarom vinden we wel goud in Oost-Suriname maar niet in het westen? Waarom is de Voltzberg rond en de Brownsberg plat? Hoe ontstaan soela’s? Waar kan je bauxiet vinden, en waar olie, en waarom niet ergens anders? Hoe ontstaan witzandsavannes? Waarom verandert de kust zo snel?

Het zijn allemaal vragen die te maken hebben met de geologische ontstaanswijze van het land. Een geschiedenis die al twee miljard jaar geleden begon tijdens de Trans-Amazonische Gebergtevorming. Dit is het eerste Nederlandstalige boek dat in begrijpelijke termen voor een breed publiek uitlegt hoe de ondergrond, het landschap en de delfstoffen van Suriname zijn ontstaan.
