About this book

Language: German

This basic book enables all those interested in geology to determine the most important rock types with the simplest tools. Each of the rock-related chapters is preceded by a short introduction that explains how and where each of them originated, under what conditions they are formed, and what mineral or chemical composition they have. All rocks are presented by brilliant and detailed photos and described exactly. The successful didactic structure and deepening digressions help to understand the principles of identification quickly and to classify rocks successfully anywhere.

Summary in German:
Dieses Grundlagenbuch versetzt alle an der Gesteinskunde Interessierten in die Lage, die wichtigsten Gesteinsarten mit einfachsten Hilfsmitteln zu bestimmen. Jedem der nach Gesteinsarten gegliederten Kapitel ist eine kurze Einführung vorangestellt, die erläutert, wie und wo sie jeweils entstanden sind, unter welchen Bedingungen sie sich gebildet und welche mineralogische bzw. chemische Zusammensetzung sie haben. Sämtliche Gesteine werden durch brillante und detailgenaue Fotos vorgestellt und exakt beschrieben. Der gelungene didaktische Aufbau und vertiefende Exkurse tragen dazu bei, die Prinzipien der Bestimmung rasch zu verstehen und Gesteine überall erfolgreich einordnen zu können.
