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.
