Marino Maggetti


I studied as former professor for mineralogy and petrography with my working group (20 Diploma/Master Theses & 5 PhD Theses) the evolution of the Austroalpine Silvretta nappe (Cartography, geochemistry, geochronology, geology, petrography, tectonics).

Since 2004, J.P. Hürzeler and I map sheet 1198 Silvretta of the Swiss Geologic Atlas 1:25’000. We plan to finish the field work in 2017. Actually I am also involved in the mapping of the adjoining sheet 1197 Davos, which contains a major portion of the Silvretta nappe, and am responsible for the crystalline part of the Austroalpine units in the concomitant explanation book.
