Erhard Bibus, Manfred Frechen, Michael Kösel & Wolfgang Rähle
At the Nussloch section located south of Heidelberg, a more recently exposed new loess wall was pedologically investigated. The profiles were investigated multidisciplinarily including grain-size spectra, organic and carbonate content, magnetic susceptibility, as well as biomorphology and malacology and infrared optically stimulated luminescence (IRSL). The lower part of the Late Pleistocene includes the subdivided Eemian paleosol and the Wuermian loess about 18 m thick. A Bt horizon, a humic-rich horizon (“Humuszone”) and several tundra gleysols...
