Abstract

We estimated the palaeotemperature of Granaria frumentum-containing Upper Pleistocene layers from Katymár and Császártöltés using the shell morpho-thermometer and the malaco-thermometer method and compared the results. We tested and calibrated the two methods with recent climatic and faunistical data.
