Loess-Palaeosol-Sequences from the loess area of Saxony (Germany)

Sascha Meszner, Markus Fuchs & Dominik Faust
Based on new descriptions of loess-palaeosol profiles, we present a new composite profile for the loess region of Saxony, Germany. In addition to former studies of Lieberoth & Haase new stratigraphic marker horizons and palaeosols were added. Concerning the so far poorly differentiated Weichselian pleniglacial we identified three palaeosols. A palaeoclimatic interpretation for the last glacial (Weichselian) is presented and discussed.
