Zur Methodik der Lößdifferenzierung auf der Grundlage der Carbonatverteilung

Friedhelm Hädrich
The first part of this paper is concerned with a method of geochemical fractionating of carbonates and its further development for the investigation of loess samples. This method allows to determine the amounts of total carbonate, dolomite and calcite. Methodical mistakes of analysis and calculation are discussed and it is shown how to avoid them. Finally the results of investigation of more than 300 loess samples from the southern Upper Rhine Valley are discribed and...
