Guide to Gothenburg – use of rock types

Erik together with Henrik Ranby (Department of Conservation, GU) and Thomas Eliasson (SGU) has published a guide to rock types used for the house facades in Gothenburg City. It’s published by the Swedish Geological Society (Geologiska Föreningen) and can be downloaded from their website:

Specialpublikation 4: Fasadsten i Göteborg av Erik Sturkell, Henrik Ranby och Thomas Eliasson. En exkursionsguide till fasadsten i Göteborgs centrum publicerad i september 2023.

Jeanette Bergman Weihed from Tellurit AB has done an excellent job with the layout of this publication – excursion guide. A generous contribution from ‘Elna Bengtssons fond för Vetenskaplig Forskning’ made this publication possible.
