Zur Altersfrage der mitteleuropäischen Terrae calcis

Libuse SmolÍkovÁ & Vojen Lozek
From the standpoint of the Quaternary stratigraphy, soils of the terrae calcis group can represent important pedostratigraphical horizons, provided that the geological age of the different types can be determined precisely. The conditions of their development suggest that they are typical products of a warm climate. The precise age determination of terrae calcis is most safely based on the age determination of the parent material and on their relation to erosion. As auxiliary criteria can...
