Record #199286:

Quaternary glaciation history of northern Switzerland / Frank Preusser, and 4 others.

Title: Quaternary glaciation history of northern Switzerland / Frank Preusser, and 4 others.
Author(s): Preusser, Frank.
Date: 2011.
In: Eiszeitalter und Gegenwart : E&G : Quaternary Science Journal. (2011.), Vol. 69(2-3) (2011)
Abstract: Revises glaciation history of northern foreland of Swiss Alps, summarizing field evidence and chronological data for key sites. Oldest Quaternary sediments are multiphase gravels intercalated by till and overbank deposits ("Deckenschotter"). Differences in gravel base levels allow distinguishing of "Hohere Deckenschotter" and "Tiefere Deckenschotter" (placed by mammal remains in zone MN 17 (2.6-1.8 Ma)). Each complex unit contains evidence for at least two, probably four, individual Early Pleistocene glaciations. Middle-Late Pleistocene glaciations comprise Möhlin, Habsburg, Hagenholz (uncertain), Beringen and Birrfeld (last). Möhlin was most extensive, Beringen less so. Birrfeld probably comprised independent advances (ca. 105, 65 and 25 ka BP). Presents detailed radiocarbon chronology for ice build-up and meltdown during last advance.
