This geological excursion guide with main focus on the area around Västervik in south-east Sweden has been
written as a diploma thesis at the Geoscience Center of the University of Göttingen. Based on approximately
35 diploma maps at a 1:10000 scale, which have been done at the Geoscience Center of the University of Göttingen
since 1994, 20 locations have been chosen from these geologic maps. They present an overview on the different and most
common rock types as well as significant structural phenomenon in the Västervik area.
The field guide is available for the public and is published on the Geoscience Online Community website
This guide is targeted at both geologists and non-geologists alike. Geologists and teachers may use this guide as
a basis for their own field education. A layman may be interested in geology as a hobby.
