Abstract


THE QUATERNARY IN THE NW MARGIN OF THE HOLY CROSS MTS.

The entire area of the NW margin of the Holy Cross Mts. has been covered by the glacier of the Cracovian (Mindel) glaciation. The deposits of the glaciation are preserved only in smaIl fragments what clearly points to a strong action of denudation-erosive processes during the Great interglacial (Holstein). The Middle Polish glaciations (Riss) is represented by three glaciphase series of glacial accumulation and by the sediments connected with the subsequent transgressions and recessions of the glacier. The Eemian interglacial has been marked by the development of denudation-erosive processes, fluvial deposition and by soil forming processes. The last cold period (Wòrm) is distinctly divided into an older part – loess-forming, and younger one – glacial. The latter is characterized by solifluctional changes in weathering covers and formation of the surface of the II-nd terrace
