Abstract


PROPOSAL OF INTERGLACIAL STRATOTYPE SITES FOR THE MIDDLE PLEISTOCENE OF POLAND

Abstract. The paper presents a justified proposal of stratotype sites for four interglacial units (formations) in the lower and middle part of the Middle Pleistocene of Poland. The stratotype site for the lowermost (oldest) unit (Kozi Grzbiet = Małopolanian Interglacial) is a richly documented, e.g. by palaeontological and palaeomagnetic data, succession of deposits on Kozi Grzbiet near Kielce. The second, younger unit (Ferdynandovian Interglacial) is a succession of lacustrine-marsh deposits in Ferdynandów near Kock, documented by e.g. pollen and diatom data. In turn, the stratotype site for the third unit, (Mazovian Interglacial) is the succession of lacustrine-marsh deposits in Krępiec near Lublin, with pollen and diatom data. The fourth, youngest unit (Zbójnian Interglacial) is documented based on pollen data by the lacustrine-marsh deposits in Zbójno near Przedbórz. All mentioned sites and the defined interglacial units have for a long time been commonly cited in Polish and foreign papers and are considered by many scientists as typical for the Pleistocene of Poland.
