Chronology of Weichselian main ice marginal positions in north-eastern Germany

Christopher Lüthgens & Margot Böse
The chronology of the Weichselian Pleniglacial in north-eastern Germany was so far mainly based on morphostratigraphy and radiocarbon ages of organic sediments underlying glacigenic deposits. Throughout the last years direct dating approaches, i.e. Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) dating of glacioflucial deposits and surface exposure dating (SED) of erratic boulders, have been applied in a number of studies. We summarise and reassess the results of these studies following a process based interpretation model and propose a...
