Geocache Description:


Zpatky do praveku/Back to the prehistory


cesky:

Priblizne devet kilometru jihovychodne od Zatce se na okraji obce Tuchorice nachazi prirodni pamatka Miocenni sladkovodni vapence, ktera je svou geologickou a paleontologickou hodnotou zcela vyjimecna.

Predmetem ochrany teto prirodni pamatky je geologicky profil souvrstvi sladkovodnich vapencu miocenniho stari o delce 300m a vysce az 25 m s vyznamnym paleontologickym obsahem, ktery je svou rozsahlosti jediny v ramci Ceske republiky.

V teto oblasti se v obdobi asi pred 20 mil. lety, oznacovanem jako miocen (mladsi tretihory), vyskytovaly mineralizovane prameny, ze kterych vznikaly vapenite usazeniny. Soucasti usazenin se stala i tehdejsi flora a fauna. Miocenni vapence proto obsahuji mnozstvi fosilnich zbytku suchozemskych i vodnich plzu vzacne i rostlin.

V suti pod lomovou stenou lze nalezt zkameneliny temer v kazdem kameni (staci jen dobre koukat), a proto neni treba lamat kamen primo ze steny a nicit tuto pamatku. Samozrejmosti je zakaz sberu zkamenelin bez povoleni Ministerstva zivotniho prostredi v teto chranene lokalite!


Tato lokalita byla vyhlasena prirodni pamatkou Miocenni sladkovodni vapence dne 2. 12. 1983 na plose 1,75 ha. Chranene uzemi je pristupne po ceste od silnice na Lipno na severovychodnim okraji obce, dostanete se k nemu, když projdete ulickou pri domech na konci obce.

Nedaleko se nachazi dalsi prirodni pamatka „Travertinova kupa", ktera je vyznamnym paleontologickym nalezistem s vyskytem kosternich zbytku tretihornich obratlovcu, mekkysu a subtropickych vyssich rostlin. Chranene uzemi se nachazi na jihovychodnim okraji Tuchoric u silnice na Markvarec.


Aby byl Vas log uznan je zapotrebi splnit nasledujici ukol:

• vyfotit se u steny (nesmi byt videt informacni tabule)
(POZOR! NA FOTCE MUSITE BYT ROZPOZNATELNI! VSECHNY NEVYHOVUJICI LOGY BUDOU SMAZANY )

• poslat mi na email informaci:
1) kolik druhu zkamenelych vodnich i suchozemskych plzu zde bylo objeveno (viz. text z informacni tabule)
2) ve kterem roce byla ukoncena tezba v lomu

english:

At the edge of the village Tuchorice lays natural monument the freshwater miocene carbonates, approximately 9 kilometers SE from Zatec.

The object of the preservation is the geological profile of the strata of freshwater carbonates of miocene age with its 300 meters length and 25 meters higth with important paleontological content.

20 mil. years ago (in miocene) occured in this area mineralized springs, from which rised carbonated sediments. Then flora and fauna were part of it. That is why the freshwater miocene carbonates contains the amount of fossilized rests of terrestrial and water animals (slugs) and plants.

In the debris you can find fossils in every stone (you have to look very closely!) but you are not allowed to quarry it from the profile. Of course you are not allowed to collect the fossils!

This area was proclaimed as the natural monument in 1983 and is accessible by the way from the route to Lipenec at the southeastern edge of the village Tuchorice.

Not far from this place is another important paleontological locality „the pile of travertine“.

If you want to log this cache, you have to complete two following tasks:

• take a photo of you at the profile (without information board)
ATTENTION! YOU HAVE TO BE RECOGNIZED ON THE PHOTOGRAPH! ALL THE LOGS WITH INCORRECT PHOTOS WILL BE DELETED.

• send me via email information:
1) how many species of fossils of terrestrial and water slugs were found in the profile (see the text in information board)
2) In which year was the exploitation in the quarry finished

Additional Hints (No hints available.)
