Remarks concerning Pliocene formations in the vicinity of Krościenko on the Dunajec River (Southern Poland)

The author gives several new observations concerning the Pliocene in the vicinity of Krościenko on the Dunajec River. He states that the sedimentary deposits which according to hitherto conducted investigations were said to represent in one exposure a Middle Pliocene series and a series of the older Pleistocene, form a continuous series. In the profile there is not observable any change of sediment which could suggest the existence of a sedimentation-gap corresponding to the Upper Pliocene. Neither are there any sufficient criteria for differentiating the Pliocene sediments from Pleistocene ones. In view o f the absence of sufficient evidence proving the Pleistocene age of the upper sediments in the known exposures, the author is inclined to include in the Pliocene all of the profile where beds of various types display gradual passages.
