Climatic variation in the pre-glacial part of the Toruń Glaciation in the Lower Vistula Region and the Elbląg Elevation (preliminary report)

Aurelia Makowska

Abstract


In the upper part of the Lower Vistula formation in the Lower Vistula Region and the Elbląg Elevation a cyclic deposition of fluvial and fluvial-deltaic-lacustrine sediments was noted. It reflects successive climatic changes at the turn of the Eemian Interglacial and the Toruń Glaciation. These changes comprised at least three successive coolings and warnings. The oldest warming has been palynologically determined as the Amersfoort-BrØrup. Following cool and warm waves are to be correlated with the Early Vistulian stadials and interstadials, distinguished in pollen sites from Poland by K. Mamakowa (1989) and at Władysławów by K. Tobolski (1991). Studies carried out in the Lower Vistula Region and the Elbląg Elevation prove that all these intervals were climatically connected with the pre-glacial part of the Toruń Glaciation.
