Wim Z. Hoek
The Weichselian Late Glacial (ca. 13,000 - 10,000 years BP) marks the transition from the cold Weichsel Late Pleniglacial to the warmer Holocene. During this period the climate rapidly changed as did the vegetation and the abiotic landscape. The vegetational development of the Weichselian Late Glacial in The Netherlands is determined firstly by the large-scale changes in climate and in the second place by local variations in lithology, geomorphology and hydrology.
