Abstract

This study focuses on a palaeoecological analysis carried out in the Csorgókút Valley at the Kopasz Hill of Tokaj, on the upper fossil soil horizon (Upper Fossil Soil Horizon of Tokaj) of a 15m-high loess section dissected by fossil soils. Hungarian and international references indicate that a chernozem-like palaeosoil developed on the loess sediments in the Carpathian Basin during this period of time. Furthermore, the results of the analysis showed that a boreal, forest-steppelike soil developed under the pine forest in examined soil horizon; subsequently, a podzol soil developed under spruce forest. On the basis of the results of the analysis - in contradiction to earlier, over-simplified palaeoecological models - a different environment historical development can be expected (in parallel) in the Carpathian Basin in the latest phase of the Wechselian.
