Vistulian loess deposits of the Dalków Hills

Katarzyna Issmer


A new site of loess deposits of the Dalków Hills at Cisów, and spatial relations between loess deposits and glacial deposits are presented in order to determine potential sources for alimentation of loess material. Based on detailed lithologic investigations, including textural, structural and lithofacial analysis, massive and crypto-laminated loess deposits were identified. Genesis of loess deposits at Cisów suggests that these are of the Vistulian age, formed under periglacial conditions in this area after a retreat of the ice sheet of the Leszno Phase (20 ka BP).
