Marine Interglacial Deposits in the Cuxhaven Area, NW Germany: A Comparison of Holsteinian, Eemian and Holocene Foraminiferal Faunas

Karen Luise Knudsen
Interglacial foraminiferal faunas are described from Holsteinian, Eemian, and Holocene deposits in borings from the Cuxhaven area. These assemblages are compared with published faunal lists from corresponding interglacial deposits in NW Germany and Denmark. The faunal succession of each interglacial sequence in the present area has its own characteristic features. Of particular interest is the fact that the presence and/or abundance of certain taxa in each of the interglacials may prove to be useful for...
