4. Location Index

In this chapter an assortment of worthwhile outcrops are described from the Västervik area. One criteria was to select locations where the characteristics of certain rock types or structures have the most conspicuous development. The exposures are located at the coast, in roadcuts or in quarries. Most of them are reachable with only a short walk. The parking of several cars or vans can be done on turnouts or in parkinglots, however, along the E22 highway, attention should be payed to the road traffic. The listed locations comprise a short description of the most conspicuous structures, further readings, study questions, field photos and also some photos of thin sections. For GPS users three different types of graticules are listed. One can either choose between the Gauss-Krüger German Grid, Swedish Grid (based on RT90 datum) or the international WGS 84 Grid. Please don't take any samples to ensure that the longterm quality of these exposures remain for future visitors.
