Geological map of Denmark 1:50 000 – map sheet Mors, NW Denmark
Danish geological maps of deposits occurring at the terrain surface are published under the name of Geological map of Denmark 1:50 000 and are based on geological field mapping at 1:25 000. Most of the published maps follow the map sheet division shown in Fig. 1. However, in some instances it is appropriate to publish geological maps covering a regional unit, such as an island. Hence, the geological map of Mors appears as the 1:50 000 map sheet Mors, which covers parts of map sheets 1116 I, 1116 II and 1116 III (Figs 1, 2; Pedersen & Jakobsen 2012). Mors shows spectacular examples of glaciotectonic structures that are beautifully exposed in coastal cliff sections. It also has a unique geological history, which is briefly described in this paper.
