Möns geology


Geology is perhaps that of the natural sciences, the common results of which are easiest to understand and of interest to a larger public space. The foundations on which this science builds its conclusions are simple and easy to understand for everyone, and the results are often of great and ordinary interest, although the treaties from which they often emerge are very specific and seemingly uninteresting.

Hoping that there will be many joys to see that the (more or less certain) end of special investigations on the soil of one of its famous and often visited natural beauties may lead to, I have said that these investigations and conclusions in a general exposition present form. In this way it could not be avoided that many had to be uninteresting in detail to a larger audience in order to justify the ordinary and, I do not believe, unimportant conclusions in the eyes of the Savior, which in my opinion as well as many facts about the Part of the common geology can be deduced. A part of Andre’s geological surveys in Denmark and the neighboring countries must be touched in order to arouse the interest of the larger readership in the special surveys of the moons and to collect them for a whole piece. Both classes of readers would easily see what was almost intended for each of them and what they could do without harm.

As I commend my work to the benevolence and enjoyment of the public, it is my pleasure to be able to submit the following declaration of a copy sent to the university as a thesis to ensure that it is not devoid of scientific value.

The dissertation contains a very comprehensive, detailed and careful geognostic description of the meadow, accompanied by a large number of extremely well executed average drawings, some maps of the island and an excellent profile drawing of the entire cliff. The author took great care in examining and describing the formation of chalk and, in particular, the strange formation of the chalk and scallop shells. The description is very precise and the ending. The author has not kept himself entirely free from theoretical considerations and gives him a clear and obvious picture of the composition of the Klint. Since the other formations are very well elaborated and while this description of the moons is a work of scientific merit that does not expand our knowledge of the geognostic nature of Denmark, the theoretical dough of the work develops the author’s ideas with clarity and insight that it is him Going well Also recognized in foreign literature In view of the theories put forward, we find that our recognition of the value of work does not imply the inferiority of the theoretical beliefs presented therein. VZ must very much regret that such a good work could not be awarded the prize and recommend Forfattereu as the hottest to be rewarded with the medal.
