Dohlenstein landslide, Kahla, Thuringia3D Model
The Dohlenstein landslide occurred on an inverted graben in the Saale valley in Thuringia, Germany. The top of the hill is made up of Muschelkalk, the base is Buntsandstein (both Triassic rocks). The first description of a landslide is from 1740. Back then the Saale River was partially blocked. Even today the river has not managed to fully erode the landslide toe. The landslide was reactivated several times (1780, 1828, 1881, 1920). Our 3D model is based on drone aerial images and was built using the Structure-from-Motion technique.
This model is part of the project “30 Geotope³”, which celebrates the 175 anniversary of the German Geological Society DGGV (https://www.dggv.de/startseite.html). Project website: https://digitalgeology.de/en/
The model was build by Mark Mücklisch and Jakob Stubenrauch (FSU Jena).
