Photo:Group of educators in the Alps near Saulzburg, Austria discussing with Dr. Roth the origin of the Lofer cyclothems. Three of the cyclothems (designated as 1-3) are visible in the cliff. Under consideration is evidence that these were dposited rapidly, in contrast to the usual interpretatiion that it took many thousands of years to deposit each of these.
