Zur Stratigraphie des Saale-Glazials in Niedersachsen und zu Korrelationsversuchen mit Nachbargebieten

Klaus-Dieter Meyer
The Saalian, which directly follows the Holsteinian, is a complex stratigraphie unit. Recently the Holsteinian interglacial was correlated on the basis of Th/U dates with MIS 9. Therefore, the Reinsdorf interglacial from the Schöningen opencast mine, where the famous spears were found, has to be younger than 400 000 years, probably c. 270 000 (correlated with MIS 9a) or c. 240 000 years (correlated with MIS 7). These warm periods clearly took place before the...
