Palynostratigraphische Untersuchungen an letztinterglazialen Schieferkohlen des nördlichen Napfvorlandes (Schweizerisches Mittelland)

In the lignite area of Schweinbrunnen situated southwest to the small town of Huttwil (Swiss Plateau) a coring was carried out. The 11.60 m long core was studied by means of pollen analysis in order to provide information about the vegetation history, the paleoclimatic changes and the lignite deposition during this period. The pollen sequence covers the vegetation history of a nearly complete interglacial period, which corresponds to the Riss/Würm interglacial. Two fragmentary sequences from...
