About this book

Language: German

Interest in the environment has never been greater and yet most of us have little knowledge about the 4 billion years of history that formed it. This book explains the principles of geology, geography and geomorphology, and shows how a basic understanding of geological timescales, plate tectonics and landforms can help you 'read' the great outdoors. This is a highly illustrated book with a very accessible text that clearly illuminates the landscape around us.

Summary in German:
Woher hat ein Tal oder ein Hang seine besondere Gestalt? Warum sind manche Steilküsten durch senkrechte Kliffs geprägt, manche dagegen durch Felsstürze und Erdrutsche? Warum bestehen einige Strände aus grobem Geröll, andere hingegen aus feinem Sand oder Schlick?

Anhand sorgfältig ausgewählter Fotos und Illustrationen erklärt dieses reich illustrierte Buch auf anschauliche und verständliche Weise die Entwicklung der vielfältigen Landschaften und die Entstehung ihrer charakteristischen Formen.

Auf Spaziergängen, Wanderungen oder Reisen, im Gebirge, im Tiefland oder an der Küste – dieser nützliche Begleiter
- unterstützt beim «Lesen» der Landschaft,
- zeigt, wie das, was wir in der Landschaft sehen, zu deuten ist,
- erklärt die wichtigsten Prozesse, die die Landschaftsformen vor unseren Augen geschaffen haben.
