Radiocarbon dates for upper Eem and Würminterstadial samples

Hl. De Vries
Radiocarbon dates have been obtained for Eem-interglacial and Würm-interstadial sections from Loopstedt (Germany) and Amersfoort (Netherlands), for a few isolated peat samples from North-Western Europe and for charcoal samples from Austrian loess regions. Even the upper part of the Eemian proved to be too old to give a significant activity (age more than 53000 years). According to the present results the interstadial Würm II/III (fossil soil of Paudorf) occurred at about 26000 years ago. Because...
