Skaergaard is famous for the ‘layered’ appearance of the rocks. The layers formed when hot liquid magma inside the earth cooled and crystallized. By studying the layers, we will gain a better understanding of how volcanoes are connected to Earth’s interior, and how deposits of useful metals are formed.
