Die atmosphärische Zirkulation in Europa im Hochglazial der Weichsel-Eiszeit—abgeleitet von Paläowind-Indikatoren und Modellsimulationen

Hans-Heinrich Meyer & Christoph Kottmeier
Derived from palaeowind indicators (Loess, Sand-loess) the wind regimes predominating in Europe during the Weichselian glacial maximum are presented in two survey maps. The geological results are compared with the results of a simple atmospheric model at that time. The model was formulated independent of palaeowind indicators, but included information on palaeothermal indicators.Two concurrent wind regimes are apparent. In the immediate vicinity of glaciation and in eastern Europe, the palaeowind indicators document easterly and north...
