Abstract

Radiocarbon ages δ18O isotope ratios of mollusc finds from Quaternary fluviatile and eolian deposits are presented. Ten malacofaunistic levels and some species of chronological indicator role have been ascertained within the period 7000-32 000 yr BP. Comprehensive studies of the paleoclimatic changes, chronological, isotope geochemical data as well as bioindicative results showed the same climatic periods as found in N. and W. Europe, although the climate of the studied area was of a rather continental character at the end of the Pleistocene. -from Authors
