Pre-Conference Field Trip

Field Trip 1: “Kaiserstuhlvulkanismus”2 Days -> 16.09. at 8:00 – 17.09.2021 back between 16:00 – 18:00 hMeeting point: KIT AGW (Institute for Applied Geosciences, Adenauerring 20a, 76131 Karlsruhe)Guides: Dr. Elisabeth Eiche; Dr. Benjamin Walter16.09.21: wine tasting | Accommodation: Gasthof “Löwen” Sasbach (https://loewen-sasbach.de/)17.09.21: individual departure from Freiburg main station or departure to KIT between 4-6pm -> arrival at KIT between 6-8pm The Kaiserstuhl volcanic complex is located about 120 km southwest of Karlsruhe. Within a few km, various alkaline rocks are present here, which were formed intrusive, effusive or explosive. These include carbonatite, foid-bearing monzogabbro, tephrite and phonolite. Many quarries allow insights into the subvolcanic center of a volcanic structure. Furthermore, the Kaiserstuhl is covered by glacial loess deposits. During our field trip we will talk about the latest findings on the formation of the Kaiserstuhl and its structure and explore the relevance of the deposits. The geology and special location in the Upper Rhine Graben mean that the Kaiserstuhl is on the one hand home to rare animal and plant species, and on the other hand particularly suitable for viticulture. These aspects will also be considered during our field trip. There is also a connection between rocks and wine. Therefore, a wine tasting awaits us at the end of the first day.Please note:• Bring with you: Terrain appropriate clothing & footwear, hammer, magnifying glass, water bottle (can become very hot); something to eat for the 1th day.• Additional costs for wine tasting including food.• Take care – it’s a tick area 

 

Post-Conference Field Trips

Field Trip 2: “Schwarzwald / Black Forest”3 Days -> 24.09. at 7 h – 26.09.2021 back between 18 – 20 hMeeting point: 7:00 h at KIT AGW (Institute for Applied Geosciences, Adenauerring 20a, 76131 Karlsruhe)Guides: Dr. Benjamin Walter, MSc Michele Jungmann24.09.21: Minibus from Münstertal to Neuenweg25.09.21: Minibus from Neuenweg to Badenweiler, Lahr Oberwolfach to Badener Höhe26.09.21: Minibus from Baden-Baden to Neubulach For centuries, the Schwarzwald was a centre for mining which was mainly carried out on hydrothermal vein deposits. Many of these veins are still accessible in old mines (today visitor mines) and outcropping in the field. This field trip aims to explore the 300 Ma long hydrothermal activity in the Schwarzwald mining district and focuses on the vertical variability of the Jurassic-Cretaceous hydrothermal system. The Schwarzwald offers by its asymmetric exhumation the possibility to visit the hydrothermal system from 2000m below the basement overburden unconformity (Southern Schwarzwald) to 500m above (Northern Schwarzwald). The focus is on the reservoir processes and the fluid sources, which have changed over millions of years.Please note:• Bring with you: Field clothing & footwear, hammer, magnifying glass, water bottle (can become very hot); food for day one and two.• You have to pay entrance fees by yourself (approx. 20 € per person) Field Trip 3: “Wutachschlucht and Donau-Aach”2 Days: 24.09. – 25.09.2021 | 8:00 hMeeting point and Time: 8:00 KIT AGW (Institute for Applied Geosciences, Adenauerring 20a, 76131 Karlsruhe)Guide: Prof. Dr. Nico Goldscheider24.09.21: Wutachschlucht25.09.21: exploring the area of Donau-Aach The Wutach Gorge is part of the Southern Black Forest Nature Park and is under special protection. Its geologically young, prototypical and vividly ongoing formation produces a great variety of geo- and biotopes and enables a corresponding wealth of animal and plant species.The area between the Danube and the source of the river Aach is described in detail in terms of geology, hydrogeology, water quality and water management.Please note:• Please bring with you Terrain appropriate clothing & footwear, hammer, magnifying glass, water bottle (can become very hot); something to eat for day one. Field Trip 4: “Geology of the Kraichgau”1 Day -> 24.09.2021 | 10:00 – 16:00 hMeeting point: KIT AGW (Institute for Applied Geosciences, Adenauerring 20a, 76131 Karlsruhe)Guide: Dr. Benjamin BuschOn this field trip we visit outcrops in the Kraichgau, east of the Rhine Graben. The sedimentological and structural geological conditions of the Kraichgau will be discussed. The spatial proximity to the Upper Rhine Graben offers the opportunity to view rocks, which are used as resources and reservoirs in the geological subsurface, in 3D in the outcrop. Supplemented by geophysical and petrophysical data, an analog for Triassic reservoir rocks in the area of the Upper Rhine will be developed.Please note:• Please bring with you Terrain appropriate clothing & footwear, water bottle (can become very hot); something to eat. Field Trip 5: “Geology around Pechelbronn, Rheingraben”1 Day: 25.09.2021 | 8:30 -18:00 hMeeting Point: Karlsruhe Main StationGuide: Dr. Carsten Reinhold“Merkwiller-Pechelbronn - from the birthplace of modern oil production to the geothermal and balynological use of hot thermal waters – a geohistorical journey”The village of Merkwiller-Pechelbronn on the French side of the Upper Rhine Graben is the birthplace of modern oil production in Europe. Oil seeps have been known since the 15th century. Oil sand mining started from the Pechelbronn oil field in the early 18th century, followed by the drilling of more than 5000 (!) wells, which produced more than 24 MMbbl of oil until the abandonment of the field in 1964. Pechelbronn is the “locus typicus” for the oil-bearing Pechelbronn-Formation, which is productive in the whole central and northern Upper Rhine GrabenWe will visit the site of the first modern oil well, the well site where the first wire logging operation was performed by the Schlumberger brothers as well as a natural oil seep. We will also have a look to the impact of mining, post-mining damages and attempts to use hot geothermal water for a spa and power generation.Please note:• Please bring with you Terrain appropriate clothing & footwear (weather-dependent); a water bottle (can become very hot); something to eat
