The text on these pages are taken from US Geologic Survey and several
but what I hope is to present this material - and all this information
-in a way
'ordinary people' may understand it, not at least including my self.
So far I have learned that people know quite a lot about very
little, and a little about
very, very much. So I have pointed out that we know very little about
what is going on -
upon and inside this planet Earth. Science still has a lot to learn,
all those specialized persons disagree about a lot of themes - and we
'the ordinary people' - are jus wondering, waiting for the next scientific
about the plate-tectonics theory
is going on, and still noone can give
a true answer to how great mountainranges are formed. Yes, the theories
and they are many.
you then start reading on the pages on this site, to gather information,
have to point out - very strongly - that the information science has
let out so far,
is purely what they believe is true to day - and there are a lot of
and tomorrow it might well be something else.
"The Chronology one has learned to use
when it comes to geological
developments (in universities abroad) are incorrect when it comes to
forces - constructive as destructive - that has formed - and still forms
What other places has lasted for thousand of years, may here be done
Still one wonders when you come to the island of Surtsey, as the same
only takes a few weeks, yes, even a few days here."
From the book 'SURTSEY, the new volcano-island
on Iceland.' by Sigurdur Thorarinsson.
Nevertheless I do hope you will find my pages
interesting, and that it will increase your
appreciation of the fantastic Earth, on which we are set.
And one more point at the end.....
there might be a risk that some words, or
the meaning of a sentence, is wrongly translated back and forth between
norwegian, and sometimes other languages, too.
