Kan man koge en jætte
i en jættegryde? 
 

 

.

En jættegryde er en rund skålformet fordybning i en eroderet klippeflade.

 

 

Giant potholes are round hollows in the cliffs.

Jættegryderne ved Sortevad.

Der findes mange små og store (diameter ca. 40 cm) jættegryder I kystklipperne ved Sortevad.

Disse er dannet ved, at brændingen i tidligere haves højere vandstand over mange år har hvirvlet sand og løse sten rundt i en eksisterende svag fordybning i klippeoverfladen.
Den ensartede roterende bevægelse på samme sted fører til yderligere udhuling af klippen og derved fremkommer en glatvægget grydeformet fordybning, der er karakteristisk for dette naturfænomen.

Før i tiden troede man, at det var jætterne, der havde været på spil. Naturfænomener, der ikke kunne forklares, blev ofte tillagt overnaturlige årsager. Udhulningen i klippen kan ligne en gryde, deraf navnet Jættegryde.

Giant Potholes...

You find many sizes of giant potholes in the coast cliffs at Sortevad.
These are formed by turbulent waves in former times oceans, wich in many years has whirled sand and stones in circular motions in an existing hollow in the rocksurface.
The same rotating movement of the stones - on the same spot in a very long period - is the reason, why there was formed a hole in the cliffs. These holes have smooth sides and look like a cooking pot. Therefore they got their name: potholes.

In former time people believed, that the giants had something to do with these holes. Nature phenomenons you couldn’t explain, were often made by trolls or giants. The hollow in the cliffs looks like a pot and the name of it got to be “giant pothole”.

To log the cache you have to answer 2 questions. Send the answers to oakees@gmail.com

Question 1: Describe in your own words how the Giant Potholes have been formed.
Question 2: How many twin potholes do you find at Sortevad?


(Optional logging task): upload a picture of you and your GPS at the potholes. Do NOT write the answers in your log!

If your answers cannot be approved by cacheowner, we will contact you! Have fun!
