Stratigraphische Untersuchungen an molluskenführenden Terrassensedimenten und ihren Deckschichten im mittleren Neckarbecken (Württemberg)

Erhard Bibus & Wolfgang Rähle
In the context of geomorphologic studies, results from three new river terrace exposures in the middle Neckar region (SW-Germany) are presented. At two sites (Heilbronn-Böckingen and Obereisesheim) mollusc bearing sediments of sand, gravel, and flood plain loam overlay the gravels of the 5-7 meter terrace sensu Bibus (2002).
