Location description

The Lodbjerg Klint in the northwest of Denmark consists of glacial morene with clay lenses from the Oligocene (part of the Paleogene period). As a result of the wind and water, the situation can change rapidly here. Sometimes the clay is completely covered up. In the clay you can find fossils.
