About this book

Language: German

Volcanoes characterize numerous landscapes in Germany. Kaiserstuhl, Vogelsberg, Röhn or Hegau are only a few examples of volcanic activity. In Germany one can find imposing lava domes, steep slag cymbals or deep maars (broad, low-relief volcanic craters). And Germany is even home to active volcanic sites like the Eifel or the Egergraben, where there can always be an outbreak.

In a unique overview, Gottfried Hofbauer presents the active, but also the older volcanic landscapes of Germany. He describes the most spectacular examples in detail and explains their vulcanological significance. The research history and the early days when discussions about volcanoes were unusually controversial are covered in-depth.

With its clear explanations, impressive photographs and explanatory illustrations, this volume offers a Vulcanology for beginners. GPS coordinates facilitate your own excursions into these exciting areas, which often lie directly in front of our doorstep.

Summary in German:
Vulkane prägen in Deutschland zahlreiche Landschaften. Kaiserstuhl, Vogelsberg, Röhn oder Hegau sind nur einige Beispiele für Hinterlassenschaften vulkanischer Aktivität. So treffen wir hier auf imposante Lavadome, steile Schlackenkegel oder tiefe Maare. Selbst aktive Vulkangebiete wie die Eifel oder den Egergraben, in denen es jederzeit wieder zu einem Ausbruch kommen kann, gibt es in unserem Land.

In einem einzigartigen Überblick stellt Gottfried Hofbauer die aktiven, aber auch die älteren Vulkanlandschaften Deutschlands vor. Detailliert beschreibt er die spektakulärsten Zeugnisse und erklärt ihre vulkanologische Bedeutung. Auch die Forschungsgeschichte, in deren Frühzeit die Diskussion über Vulkane ungewöhnlich kontrovers war, kommt nicht zu kurz.

Mit seinen anschaulichen Erläuterungen, eindrucksvollen Fotos und erklärenden Illustrationen bietet dieser Band eine ›Vulkanologie zum Anfassen‹. GPS-Koordinaten erleichtern eigene Exkursionen in diese spannenden Gebiete, die häufig direkt vor unserer Haustür liegen.
