Mazovian (Holsteinian) lake sediments at Woskrzenice near Biała Podlaska

Krzysztof Bińka, Jerzy Nitychoruk


During the Mazovian (Holsteinian) Interglacial a lake district existed in eastern Poland. Palynological analyses proved that deposition in the lakes occurred during the whole interglacial until the Odra (Saalian) Glaciation. Lacustrine sediments contain remnants of several plants which have not been noted previously for the Holsteinian Interglacial. and they may be index taxa for it. Occurrence and distribution of buried lakes is connected with faults and tectonic grabens. Origin of lakes is also discussed.
