Abstract

A borehole revealed an especially rich series of loess and paleosol in foothill position. The 60m profile comprises 30 paleosols, 10 loess layers, at least 10 sand layers and about 10 erosion gaps were identified. Continuous sampling was performed and the layers were analyzed granulometrically, pedologically and mineralogically. Paleomagnetic measurements only involved the layers suitable for this purpose. The long sequence is described and dated. -after Authors
