Volcanism in Germany – Insights from the Faculty of Geosciences

The Faculty 5 pagoda is dedicated to volcanism. In addition to a geological map of Germany with highlighted volcanic fields, a table with rock samples and a dip tank (which stone floats?) and a microscopy station with thin sections and strewn preparations offer the opportunity to get to know volcanic rocks. In an experiment box, simulated using sand, the formation of a volcanic crater can be generated and observed independently. Videos of volcanic eruptions complete the subject matter. In addition, information about the faculty and the study of geosciences is offered.
