Spatial analysis of loess and loess-like sediments in the Weser-Aller catchment (Lower Saxony and Northern Hesse, NW Germany)

Bianca Wagner
A spatial compilation and visualization of loess parameters was carried out for the Pleistocene loess and loess-like sediments in the Weser-Aller catchment (southern Lower Saxony and northern Hesse, NW Germany), one of the loess regions of Central Europe. As far as available, data about main loess characteristics like thickness, granulometry and stratigraphy were combined for the first time with spatial information extracted from maps. Data storage and analysis in a geographical information system (GIS) permitted...
