Abstract

The paper presents a pioneer in Quaternary geology, both internationally and in Scandinavia - the Swedish geologist and professor Gerard De Geer (1858-1943). This is done, first by highlighting one of his most important contributions to science - the varve chronology - a method he used to describe the Weichselian land ice recession over Scandinavia, and secondly by the re publication of a summary article on Gerard De Geer's early scientific achievement in 1881-1906 related to the Baltic Sea geology, written by his wife, Ebba Hult De Geer.
