Geocache Description:

Terranova




Viimeisen jääkauden ollessa laajimmillaan noin 20 000 vuotta sitten mannerjäätikön keskus oli Merenkurkussa. Kolme kilometriä paksu jäämassa painoi maankuorta lähes kilometrin alaspäin. Sulava jäätikkö muotoili Merenkurkun erityiset moreenimuodostelmat ja jään ohetessa maanpinta alkoi kohota ennalleen. Maa kohoaa edelleen Merenkurkussa yli 8 mm vuodessa. Uutta maata paljastuu ruotsinkielisen Pohjanmaan rannikolla vuosittain noin 300 ha. Matalassa Merenkurkussa kasvillisuus ja eläimistö joutuvat sopeutumaan jatkuvaan nopeaan muutokseen. Terranova (”uusi maa”) kertoo maankohoamisesta, Merenkurkun luonnosta ja luonnonsuojelualueista sekä antaa tietoja alueen luontoharrastus- ja luontomatkailutarjonnasta.

Då inlandsisen hade sin maximala utbredning under den senaste istiden, för cirka 20 000 år sedan, låg isens centrum I Kvarken. Ismassan, som var tre kilometer tjock, tryckte ned jordskorpan nästan en kilometer. Den smältande isen formade Kvarkens säregna moränformationer, och då ismassan smälte höjde sig jordytan. Landhöjningen i Kvarken är fortfarande över 8 mm per år. I det svenskspråkiga kustområdet i Österbotten tillkommer årligen cirka 300 ha nytt land. Floran och faunan i det grunda kvarkenområdet måste anpassa sig till den kontinuerliga, snabba förändringen. Terranova (“nytt land”) handlar om landhöjningen, Kvarkens natur och naturskyddsområden. Här ges också information om områdets naturföreningar och naturturism.

When the last Ice Age reached its greatest extent about 20,000 years ago, the Kvarken was at the very centre of a continental ice sheet. A huge mass of ice three kilometres/two miles thick forced the earth´s crust inwards by more than a kilometre. As the ice sheet melted, the characteristic moraine formations of the Kvarken were formed, and as the ice became thinner the land surface began to rise to its former level. The land is still rising in the Kvarken at the rate of 8 mm a year. Every year about 300 hectares/750 acres of new land appears on the Swedish-speaking coast of Ostrobothnia. In the low-lying Kvarken, both vegetation and animal life have to adapt themselves to the continuous and rapid process of change. Terranova (or “New Land”) tells the story of this rise, and about the natural environment of the Kvarken and its protected areas. It also provides information about tourism and special interest activities in this unique landscape.
