Abstract:
Considering their distribution, thickness, and complexity around the margins of the Quaternary ice-sheets in the Northern Hemisphere, loess sequences can be considered as one of the best records of global environmental changes on the continents. European loess sequences have been intensively studied for many decades, but increasingly higher stratigraphic resolution and the availability of a growing range of climate proxy indicators has resulted in some notable advances in recent years. Climatic variability has been analyzed at high resolution, based on different proxies.
