Lithology of the Late Pleistocene sands for stratigraphic and palaeogeographic correlation in Muszaki area, southwestern Mazury Lakeland

Wojciech Morawski, Krystyna Kenig

Abstract


Detailed geologic studies in the Muszaki region enabled testing of lithologic analysis of sandy series for stratigraphic and palaeogeographic correlation. Significant variation in grain size, content of heavy minerals and roundness of quartz grains was found for sands of the plateau, erosive outliers and erosive terraces of the Middle Polish Glaciations (Saalian), as well as for outwash terraces of the Vistulian Glaciation.
