Dieser sensationelle und vollkommen neuartige Reiseführer führt uns an wilde Seen, Flüsse und Wasserfälle in Frankreich und lässt uns das Land mit ganz neuen Augen sehen. Die Côte d'Azur zu überlaufen, der aufgewühlte Atlantik gut zum Surfen, jedoch weniger gut zum Schwimmen – aber das französische Binnenland bietet spektakuläre Badestellen, von deren Existenz wir gar nichts wussten. Ist das wirklich Frankreich und nicht Costa Rica? Drei Sommer lang bereiste der Traveler, Autor und Verleger Daniel Start mit seiner Frau das Land. Herausgekommen ist ein Brevier magischer Orte, genau solcher Orte, nach denen wir immer suchen, wenn wir auf Reisen sind. Denn in der Natur schwimmen ist eine der seltenen Dinge, die uns ein tiefes Gefühl der Verbundenheit mit der Natur – und mit uns selbst verschaffen.

Bereits Ende des 16. Jahrhunderts fand der Rheinfall als außergewöhnliches Naturschauspiel Eingang in die Kunst. Anfangs waren es vor allem die individuellen Empfindungen der Künstler, die in den Darstellungen Ausdruck fanden. Unzählige Druckgrafiken, Handzeichnungen, Aquarelle, Gouachen und Ölgemälde verbildlichten das beeindruckende Szenario mit seinen tosenden Wassermassen. Aufgrund seiner einzigartigen Wirkung galt der Rheinfall im Zuge der Französischen Revolution sogar als Metapher für die politischen Umwälzungen und wurde vor dem Hintergrund der Ästhetik des Erhabenen als Paradebeispiel für menschliche Grenzerfahrungen betrachtet. Mit dem Aufschwung des Schweizer Tourismus zum Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts richteten sich viele Künstler auf die neue Kundschaft ein, für die sie besonders naturnahe Ansichten herstellten und neue effiziente Druck- und Herstellungsverfahren nutzten. 00Exhibition: Mittelrhein-Museum, Koblenz, Germany (6.3.-7.6.2015).

In diesem Buch wird einerseits die spannende Entdeckung der Stratosphäre selbst und verschiedener unerwarteter Phänomene in der Stratosphäre beschrieben: ein bemannter Ballonflug im Jahr 1901 bis in 11 km Höhe; eine Expedition zum Victoriasee im Jahr 1908; die Entdeckung der Ozonschicht um 1930, des "Berliner Phänomens" im Jahr 1952, des Einflusses von Vulkaneruptionen im Jahr 1982, des Ozonlochs im Jahr 1985 und des Einflusses der Sonnenaktivität im Jahr 1987. Andererseits wird gezeigt, wie diese Erscheinungen miteinander verknüpft sind und wie sie anthropogene und natürliche Schwankungen in unserem Klimasystem verursachen. Am Beispiel der Stratosphäre soll das Buch zum Verständnis der Erforschung komplizierter Zusammenhänge in der Natur beitragen.
