Burgerbukta (Hornsund)

Burgerbukta is on the northern side of Hornsund, and it displays this beautiful panorama on its eastern shore. The beauty of this landscape in terms of colours and structures is deeply rooted in its geology. The colouration is due to the layers: from brownish-red Old Red at the bottom (Devonian/lower Carboniferous) through yellowish-brown upper Carboniferous/Permian to dark-brown Triassic at the top. And the deformation related to the opening of the north Atlantic is responsible for the beautiful folds and bends.

No 360° panorama, only works with the Flash Player on mobile devices, for example, with the → Puffin-Browser.
