Lockerbraunerden, periglaziale Solifluktionsdecken und holozäne Kolluvien im Oberwald (Hoher Vogelsberg)

Abstract. The conception that the substratum of the "Lockerbraunerde" of the Hohe Vogelsberg Mountains should represent a Late-Pleistocene, periglacial aeolian sediment, is rejected. It is demonstrated primary by means of radio carbon-datings of fossil Ah-horizons that a large portion of this substratum consists of anthropogenic colluvium. Its development occured most likely already during the earlier Holocene. The findings that the "Deckschutt" and also the substratum of the "Lockerbraunerde" are representing contemporaneous developments of the Younger Dryas are substantiated,
