Theme 11: Soils and klimpers (wet sand dunes)

The development of the Danish soils since the last glaciation has in many sand-dominated places been in competition with eroding wind. Due to circumferent erosion podsols holding rainwater lakes are in some places left in extraordinarely well developed flat topped hills.
