Oberharzer Erzbergbau um 1920 - 1. Der Bergbau

The film covers the first part of an three-part film on the Upper harz ore mining industry, shot in 1923. It begins with shots of the hydroeconomic drain an dpond system, and of the shaft system "Silbersegen", conveyance of which was done with one water wheel up to 1931 and of the modern installed shaft "Kaiser-Wilhelm-II". Then follows the "conveyance" of the miners in the Kaiser-Wilhelm shaft, with a brief view of the hydraulic head machine in this shaft and of the power generating plant in the Ernst-August gallery. Winning and conveyance underground are then shown in detail: long-distance conveyance in closed trains with electric trolley locomotives, winning of the crude or by drilling and blasting and removal to the tubs, which are brought to the surface in the cage.

Oberharzer Erzbergbau um 1920 - 3. Die Verhüttung

The film covers the third part of an, originally, three-part film on the Upper Harz ore mining industry, shot in 1923. Here we see the smelting in the Frankenscharrn smelting plant in Clausthal, which was first operated in 1554; first step is the roasting and desulphurization of the ore concentrates in a one-story rotary furnace with subsequent dead-roasting and sintering in a converter. The roasting charge is then smelted in blast-furnaces with lateral gas exhaust. We are also shown the slag tapping and, finally, the lead tapping. In addition to the silver-bearing lead, which is cast in bars, copper-bearing compounds are also won.

The Bianco Beach - Processes and Products of a Dynamic Equilibrium in Sediment Transport - 1. Problems and Methods

The Bianco Beach in Calabria, South Italy, receives gravel and sand from a delta and transports it to a submarine canyon. The system ist, therefore, in a dynamic equilibrium. Geologists, geomorphologists and coastal engineers are investigating this equilibrium. The film provides an introduction into the problems of coastal dynamics, explains the most important terms, gives a summary of the results and demonstrates the methods applied.

The Bianco Beach - Processes and Products of a Dynamic Equilibrium in Sediment Transport - 2. Results

The dynamic equilibrium of the Bianco Beach can be quantified. Erosion and accumulation are treated in three temporal scales: A storm event of three days, the changing of the seasons as well as a pulsation of the Laverde Delta over half a century. The entire active coastal area surprisingly shows distinct and homogeneous distribution trends for the size, form and petrographic composition of the gravels. A tracer experiment shows high travel velocities of the gravel and proves the high reaction velocity of the Bianco Beach.

Der Arcas-Fächer in den zentralen Anden: Signale von exogenen Massenverlagerungen

The film describes methods and results of quantitative geology with reference to the Arcas Fan in the Central Andes. The Arcas Fan in the Longitudinal Valley of northern Chile and its erosion area in the Precordillera are a relatively closed feeder/receiver system, a model for calculating the balance of exogenic mass transfer and therefore possible isostatic compensation.

Desiccation Cracks

The film introduces into the field of contraction phenomena and explains why desiccation cracks are formed. It describes the main features of desiccation cracks using both modern and fossil examples and demonstrates, via time lapse, how desiccation cracks develop in an experiment. The computer reproduces this process plotting the sequence of the digitized cracks. Graphic animation shows the interaction between tensile strength and tensile stress responsible for the information of the orthogonal crack pattern. Finally, the possible geological meaning of desiccation cracks is discussed.

Field and Photo Sieving

Photo sieving was developed for analyzing the areal surface particle-size distribution of open framework gravel with empty voids between large particles. Samples from various gravel surfaces were used to compare photo-sieving results to results obtained from mechanical sieving with square-hole sieves.

Understanding the Baltic Ecosystem - BASYS - Baltic Sea System Studies

The interdisciplinary and international project BASYS (Baltic Sea System Studies) was financed by the Europeen Union in the years 1996 to 1999 and investigated many aspects and influences of mankind activities on the ecosystem Baltic Sea as well as the natural influences such as climate and weather. A large database accessible to all scientists was collected during the project and should help in the future to distinguish between the natural and human effects upon the ecosystem of the Baltic Sea. This is important for the management of the damaged ecosystem and to insure that in future a permanent steady state can be reestablished in the Baltic Sea.

The Flooding on the Oder River in the Summer of 1997

Extremely heavy rainfall in large parts of Eastern Europe resulted in disastrous floods on the river Oder in the Czech Republic, Poland and Germany. In many places the highest floodwater levels exceeded those previously recorded. The flooding in Germany was also exceptional because of its long duration. This documentation shows the course of events in the German disaster zone, gives an impression of the complexity of the protective measures and provides political and technical conclusions drawn from the Oder flooding for the future. Furthermore, the video explains the hydrological, geographical and historical background of the affected German Oder region and gives information about damage to technical high water protection systems and its prevention.

Landscape Development in an Extreme Montane Environment - Karakorum and Kunlun

Exemplified by two selected montane systems of the High Asian plateau, the landscape development from the ice age to the present day has been documented. Following the first part, featuring the evidence of ice age glaciation from the main mountain ridge to the foreland, the second part is concerned with current glaciers, their extent, nourishment as well as their geomorphological and ecological conditions. The third part concentrates on a description of the regolithic backfilling of the relief during deglaciation. Landscape development is explained from the glaciogenesis of the relief, incorporating the latest scientific findings. (See film C 1856)

Recent and Ice-Age Glaciation of Upland Asia - Findings of the 1984 South Tibet and Mount Everest Expedition

Physical geographical research results (glaciological, climatological, geomorphological, paleoclimatological) from South Tibet and the Great Himalaya to the North are presented in three sections: 1. Description, typification and glacial climatological interpretation of recent glaciation and its mass distribution; 2. Comparison of recent ridge types, explanation of their development and their categorization in genetic series; 3. Depiction of the history of glaciation in reverse chronological order back to the point of maximum inland glaciation in Tibet during the last Great Ice Age about 60 000-20 000 years ago. This point shows that the terrestrial energy loss caused by the reflection of the sun's irradiation from these ice surfaces was what really set off the ice age.
