Pleistocene of the Mochowo Depression in the Dobrzyń Lakeland

Zbigniew Lamparski

Abstract


In the Mochowo Depression, being a deeper depression formed within the Tertiary substrate ·of the Płock Plateau and the Dobrzyń Lakeland, north Central Poland, an about 200 m thick sequence of Pleistocene deposits has been recently pierced by the boreholes. This sequence comprises the sediments of four glaciations, since the Podlasie (Günz) Glaciation through the Baltic (Vistulian = Würm) Glaciation, separated from one another by distinct erosion surfaces. A stratigraphic scheme proposed for the region is partly supported by thermoluminescence datings of the sediments.
