Klimaschwankungen im Frühweichsel der Lößabfolgen des Mittelrheingebiets

Wolfgang Boenigk & Manfred Frechen
The loess/palaeosol sequences of the Middle Rhine area provide a relatively detailed and continuous terrestrial record of climate and environment change of the past 200,000 yrs. Loess/palaeosol sequences are generally well pronounced in inter- and intra-crater depressions of scoria cones in the East Eifel Volcanic Field, and on fluvial terraces, e.g. the lower middle terrace of the river Rhine and Moselle.
