Correlation of the Middle Pleistocene ice-dam lacustrine sediments in the Lower Vistula and the Lower Elbe regions

Leszek Marks


Common occurrence of ice-dam series from the decline of the South Polish Glaciations in northern Poland and from of the Elsterian Glaciation in northwestern Germany, makes them an outstanding correlative horizon. A retreat of the Scandinavian icesheet was accompanied successively by water-damming with occasional draining of ice-dam reservoirs, and by the sea ingression onto a glacioisostatic-depressed area, followed by the regression at the optimum of the Holstein Interglacial that was caused by a gradual isostatic uplifting of the area.
