Vorschläge für eine geochronologische Gliederung des Holozäns in Europa

Gerd Lüttig
Proposals for the time-stratigraphic subdivision of the Holocene in Europe. The progress in geochronology (varve-counting, dendrochronology, C 14-dating, etc.) makes an accurate delimination of the sub-units of the Holocene possible. A standard division should be compiled. We propose to fix chronologically (e.g. by C 14) the boundaries of sections found through biostratigraphic methods, and to reexamine chronologically the local lithostratigraphic-biostratigraphic divisions of Europe and to add these to the reference scheme. For a standard subdivision,...
