About this book

Language: German

Nordwestliches Harzvorland is also called "The classic square mile of geology". As with almost any other town in Central Europe, it's an abundance of rocks that range from the Palaeozoic to recent deposits that attracted early modern naturalists such as Alexander von Humboldt. Tectonic shifts in the old rocks with their ore deposits are in the area between Salzgitter, Goslar and Wernigerode, which also display new red sandstone, limestone, Keuper, Jurassic, Upper and Lower Cretaceous. You can also find numerous salt domes here amongst others, which are a feature of this landscape and are fossils from the Cretaceous period. Embark, along with Friedhart Knolle, Stefan Mohr and Marion Seitz, on an exciting journey through nearly 500 million years of Earth.

Summary in German:
Der Nordwestharz wird gern auch „Die klassische Quadratmeile der Geologie“ genannt. Wie an kaum einem anderen Ort Mitteleuropas ist hier eine Fülle von Gesteinen vom Erdaltertum bis zu jüngsten Ablagerungen auf engstem Raum zu finden, die schon in früheren Jahrhunderten Naturforscher wie Alexander von Humboldt in ihren Bann gezogen haben. Durch tektonische Verschiebungen sind in dem Gebiet zwischen Salzgitter, Goslar und Wernigerode noch heute neben Gesteinen aus dem Buntsandstein, Muschelkalk, Keuper, Jura, Ober -und Unterkreide auch die alten Gesteine mit ihren Erzvorkommen zugänglich. So kann man hier u.a. neben zahlreichen Salzstöcken, die eine Besonderheit dieser Landschaft darstellen, auch Fossilien aus der Kreidezeit finden. Begeben Sie sich, zusammen mit Friedhart Knolle, Stefan Mohr und Marion Seitz, auf eine spannende Zeitreise durch nahezu 500 Millionen Jahre Erdgeschichte!
