Quartäre Klimaphasen und Subrosion als Faktoren der Bildung von Kies-Terrassen im südwestlichen Harzvorland

Werner Ricken
Structure and distribution of gravel bodies of the rivers Sieber and Oder are described. Furthermore other terraces exist which are formed by erosion and thus do not posess an own gravel body. The minimum age of the gravel layers, climatic variations, and solifluction intensity are derived from the stratigraphical study of the loess cover and by paleobotanical determinations. The resulting data are as follows: Upper Terrace Elster or older, Upper Middle Terrace probably Drenthe, Middle...
