About this book

Language: German

For geoscientists Namibia has always been a country of particular interest. The greatly varied geological structures make the earth history of this region like an open book — all that remains is to read it.

Many of the grandiose landscape pictures imprinted into the country were formed over millions of years, even up to 2000 million years ago. ln view of the time dimensions of earth history humans can view their own time span in a new light.

This travel guide was written to make the features and particularities of Namibian geology and the fascination, which can be derived from it, accessible to visitors and also to the interested laymen. The book gives the necessary basic knowledge in an easy understandable form and describes the geological attractions of Namibia, which can be seen en route. To experts on the country it also offers a detailed overview, which was previously not available in this form.

Summary in German:
Für geologische Wissenschaftler und Kenner war Namibia schon immer ein Land von besonderem Interesse. Die Vielfalt und „Offensichtlichkeit“ geologischer Strukturen ist groß, die Erdgeschichte dieser Region liegt wie ein offenes Buch vor jedem Besucher. Dieses Reisehandbuch wurde geschrieben und gestaltet, um die Eigenschaften und Besonderheiten der Geologie Namibias und die Faszination, die davon ausgehen kann, auch dem normalen Besucher und „interessierten Laien“ zugänglich zu machen.

Die Autorin ist Diplom Geologin und hat das Buch vor dem Hintergrund ihrer Erfahrungen als Leiterin vieler Geo-Safaris mit interessierten Nicht-Wissenschaftlern verfasst.
