Abstract


THE MAIN PROBLEMS OF PLEISTOCENE STRATIGRAPHY AND PALAEOGEOGRAPHY IN THE WORKS OF PROFESSOR STEFAN ZBIGNIEW RÓŻYCKI AND HIS STUDENTS

Abstract. The paper presents the five main scientific issues on the stratigraphy and palaeogeography of the Pleistocene undertaken by Professor Stefan Zbigniew Różycki. The first is linked with the oldest glaciation and oldest interglacial, and the second – with the sedimentary cycles and the sub-division of the Great Interglacial based on them. The third problem is focused on the identification and range of the climatostratigraphic units of the Pleistocene and the forth – on presenting the palaeogeographic evolution of the area of Poland during the Pleistocene. The fifth issue discussed herein is connected with the origin and conditions of loess accumulation. All issues, despite the fact that they had been expressed and initiated many years ago, are still the subject of scientific interest and as such are reflected in the scientific achievements of the Professor’s students and disciples.
