Knowing the history to understand the present. It all began more than 450 million years ago. Thousands of years have passed since the last Ice Age, which followed one another volcanic eruptions and cataclysms due the movement of earth plates. Due to these geological events today can be found, all over the world, a variety of unique mine sites.Near the mountains of Northern Europe, Turkey, south of Morocco, in many regions of China, North America and Brazil. Sedimentary deposits of sand, with the consequent formations of rock, due to changes of the oceans, of seas and lakes. As history teaches us, humanity has always based its evolutionary process by exploiting the natural resources that offers our planet. The discovery of mineral raw materials, and of their specific use, they favored the development and knowledge of what today is called the "Primordial Science of Geology."
Prof. Dr. Ehrhard Voigt (1905 - 2004) and "Peel Method' of profiles and sediments. In early 1700 the possibility of interpreting the scientific evolution of the planet, with its changes and its forms of life until recently, enables many researchers to bring to light many scientific discoveries. Many research programs are undertaken with the aim to reconstruct and understand the development of paleontological ecosystems based on the deposition of fossil sediments.
Prof. Dr. Ehrhard Voigt began his studies in 1922 and after years of research in 1939, during his excavations of carbon brown in Geiseltal, publishes one of his most interesting research that includes a collection of "Lackfilm", also called "Peel method" of the soils and sediments (in the specific case of lignite) profiles. His work is still available, among others, at the Museum of Geology "Geiseltalmuseum" - Germany. He was the most brilliant and enduring Scholar of the last century with 80 years of research and numerous publications (the first book at 20 years old and the last in collaboration in 2002).
Prof. Dr. Ehrhard Voigt is still recognized as one of figures of the world's leading scientific reference. After being director of the geological - paleontological University of Hamburg - have demonstrated innovative, pursuing alternative routes compared to traditional methods of scientific research, his life full of successes and awards will be turned off in 2004 at the age of 99 years.
This innovative system allowed: extract geology profiles of the soil, roll up for transport to the laboratory; conduct further research; classifying paleontological.
