Gletscherschrammen bei Burgstemmen südlich von Hannover.

Heinz Jordan and Klaus-Dieter Meyer

Abstract. In this paper a description is given of a new occurrence of glacial striae on Upper Muschelkalk near Burgstemmen, 30 km south of Hannover. Of the two crossing striation systems — N 10° E and N 60° E — the latter is the younger one. Since the striae are overlain by gravels of the Drenthe stadium it is not possible up to now to decide whether the striae have been caused by the Elster ice or by an older glacial advance of the Drenthe stadium.
