JOS BOUCKAERT ALS MENSCH UND WISSENSCHAFTLER AUS DEUTSCHER SICHT
ABSTRACT. Jos Bouckaert, his person and his scientific career as seen from a German viewpoint. In the second half of the 20"1 century a trend-setting co-operation was formed in the research on the geology of the Upper Palaeozoic (Devonian - Carboniferous) at the northern boundary of the „Linksrheinische Schiefergebirge" and the Ardennes. This led to several fundamental scientific results. A major contribution in this regard was made by Jos Bouckaert and his students. The foundation for this was certainly in his brilliant personality. He understood perfectly how to bring geologists together on joined projects and inspire them alike and beyond any political boundaries. From this came the close personal relationship, which lasted for several decades.
