Because the early many years of the final century, a few eminent eu scientists have contributed to the construction of a brand new point of view of our planet Earth. a few extraordinary clinical articles have been released within the magazine Geologische Rundschau (now International magazine of Earth Sciences), generally in German. those milestones of geoscientific study come in English for the 1st time and are provided during this quantity. well-known authors comprise for instance Alfred Wegener, a pioneer of contemporary geology, Gustav Steinmann, Alexander Du Toit, Wolfgang Schott, Hans Cloos and Carl W. Correns. The reader will discover a wealth of data approximately how new insights in particular fields have stimulated the improvement of geoscientific study.

Based on his extensive studies, Hoek (1903 and 1906) accepted this interpretation but at the same time described a tectonic megabreccia from the neighboring Brüggerhorn, which raised the possibility that the Maran breccia could be interpreted in the same way which, incidentally, was hinted at by Spitz. The renewed investigation of the agglomerate of the “schuppen-zone” [imbricate thrust zone] of Arosa by Arbenz and his collaborators S28 Cadisch (1919, 1923) and Brauchli (1921) resulted in many improvements of the earlier surveys and assignments of horizons, but the burning question concerning the original positional relationships of the various nappes within the “schuppen region” could not be resolved once and for all.
