  Beach in Spain Copyright: G. Stauch

Starting this summer, we will establish a sand database with the help of all students. The goal is a comprehensive collection of sand samples from all over the world. For this, we rely on the help of the fond of traveling among you: Bring us sand! It does not matter if it is fluvial, marine (sea beach!) or aeolian. The farther away, the better. In the laboratory of the Chair of Physical Geography and Geoecology selected samples are then microscopically examined and analyzed for their grain-size distribution.

For each sample, we need one or two significant photos of the surrounding landscape and a photo of where the sample was taken. In addition, we need the date of the sampling as well as the coordinates (which you can get at GoogleMaps for example). Approximately 100 g of sample material, which you can transport for instance in a well-rinsed jam jar, are sufficient.

Your photos and the details of your sample will be recorded, with your consent, with your name in the online database. You can hand in the samples directly to Georg Stauch in his office or send it via mail. With the results, we want to show how different the sand is worldwide!

We are looking forward to your souvenirs from all over the world!
