Eine begrabene Solifluktionsdecke und ihr Einfluß auf die heutige Vegetation: Beobachtungen auf einer Bliesterterrasse (Saarland)

Gerhard Hard

Abstract. In the lower Blies valley the author discovered a periglacial mudflow consisting of white marl and fragments of limestone, surmounted by 25-30 cm river-sand belonging to a Riß-terrace. The surface of these deposits was covered by fossil ice-wedges. The changes in the phyto-sociological structure of the vegetation cover permitted to fix the exact extension of the periglacial mudflow.
