Geo­lo­gy-gui­de for the Lon­gye­ar­by­en area

A litt­le geo­lo­gi­cal gui­de­book about the Lon­gye­ar­by­en area has now been published and will be offi­ci­al­ly pre­sen­ted on 30 June in the Sval­bard­mu­se­um in Lon­gye­ar­by­en. Earth histo­ry from the days of the dino­saurs through the coal age and more recent land­scape-forming pro­ces­ses inclu­ding gla­ciers and per­ma­frost are brief­ly explai­ned on 36 pages.

Aut­hors are Kars­ten Piep­john (Bun­des­an­stalt für Geo­wis­sen­schaf­ten und Roh­stof­fe), Mal­te Joch­mann (Store Nor­ske Spits­ber­gen Kull­kom­pa­ni) and Rolf Stan­ge (among­st others owner of this web­site). Chris­tia­ne Hüb­ner (Lon­gye­ar­by­en Felt­bio­lo­gis­ke Forening) is the edi­tor of the book­let, which is available in Eng­lish, Nor­we­gi­an and Ger­man.

All aut­hors will be pre­sent during the offi­ci­al pre­sen­ta­ti­on, which will include a litt­le excur­si­on. Ever­y­bo­dy who hap­pens to be in Lon­gye­ar­by­en on June 30 is wel­co­me. No pro­blem if you are not the­re: the book­let will soon be available on this web­site.

The new Lon­gye­ar­by­en-geo­lo­gy-gui­de is available in Eng­lish, Nor­we­gi­an and Ger­man.
