Loess stratigraphy in Dutch and Belgian Limburg

Erik P. M. Meijs
Purpose of this paper is constructing a loess-stratigraphical framework for a small region along the Albert Canal in Dutch and Belgian Limburg. Field observation and heavy mineral analysis are central focus of this study. The large-scale sediment trap environment, at scarpe foots or between river-terraces led to the conservation of thick and differentiated loess sequences. The exposed walls of the widened Albert Canal, loess sections in the adjacent loess-exploitation zone and excavations at four major...
