Emmelberg: Blick in einen Schlackenkegel des Westeifel-Vulkanfeldes

Emmelberg: View into a cinder cone of the Western Eifel volcanic field
Lecturer: Andreas Klügel

Numerous quarries in the quaternary West and East Eifel volcanic fields provide spectacular views of the interior of volcanic cones. Here, various volcanic deposits can be studied and eruption processes reconstructed. The lecture reports on the structure of the extensively eroded Emmelberg volcano near Üdersdorf, which is particularly well known to mineral collectors, and on petrological investigations to determine the depth of origin of the magma.
