Sedimentologische und mineralogische Merkmale von Lössen und Lößderivaten in Franken

Norman Peinemann & Karsten Garleff
Granulomere dates and especially quotients of puartz-feldspar- and of albit-microclin-contents are suitable indexes to characterize loess-derivates and weathering products of the underlying Keuper- and Lias-materials within holocene coluvial sediments. By theremeans it can be shown that the investigated gentle slopes in Upper-Franconia (Southeastern Germany) are divided into areas of predominant erosion of loess and underlying weathering materials at the upper part, prevailing transport at the middle part and partial accumulation of mixed coluvium at the...
