reconstruction of the geological history
Reconstruction of the geological history
  • Deposition of Miocene Clays (warm conditions
  • Slow uplift (Salt domes?), shallower conditions with deposition of coastal (sandy) facies: Pliocene Limonite
  • Deposition of riverine sediments from a large river system in the baltic region (Pliocene Kaolin sand)
  • Ice ages
    • Some Elster Deposits
    • Large Saale Deposits
    • Erosion during the Eem Interglacial leaving some outcrops
    • No deposits during the Weichsel Ice Age
    • Recent sea level rice, formation of the Wadden Sea and barrier Islands

  • Recent Dune formation
  • Solifluction of Boulder Clay (Weichsel)
  • Boulder Clay (Saale)
  • Kaolin Sand (Pliocene)
  • Limonite Sandstone (Pliocene)
  • Clay (upper Miocene/lower Pliocene)
