Pleistozän-Geologie und Palynostratigraphie in Subrosionssenken Ostwestfalens

Otfried Deutloff & Rüdiger Stritzke
In the East Westphalian mountain ridges numerous subrosion depressions were built due to partial leaching of saliniferous rocks (halite and anhydrite) since Tertiary times. They acted as sedimentary traps and accumulated mainly clastic rocks since then. In the course of modern mapping in Eastern Westphalia members of the Geological Survey of Northrhine Westphalia discovered approximately 80 subrosion depressions mainly by drilling. Ten of those are here described, where 8 contained interglacial sediments of Lower Pleistocene,...
