THE OLDEST ROCK OF AUSTRIA – DISCOVERED AT THE UNIVERSITY OF SALZBURG
27 May 2021
It has long been known that very old rocks exist in the Bohemian Massif, which stretches into northern Austria with the Daube carving out its lower boundary. The working group, led by Professor Fritz Finger from the Department of Chemistry and Physics of Materials at the University of Salzburg, has been researching these ancient crystalline rocks for many years. They have now succeeded in identifying the oldest rock ever found in Austria in the Waldviertel.
