Explanations and Imprint of the Map

The representation shows the geological situation down to a maximum depth of 5 m.
If there are several layers, only the dominant layer is shown, for the sake of simplicity.
The presentation of information on this map does not constitute an excuse from the duty to carry out project-related investigations.
* Here, surface-proximate groundwater (so-called water layers) may form
** The small occurrence of rupelton clay is located north of Waidmannslust
