Abstract

The palaeoenvironment of three Early Pleistocene glacials in The Netherlands and Belgium are studied : the intra-Tiglian " Beerse glacial " and the Eburonian and Menapian cold stages. Climatic conditions are expressed by specific periglacial phenomena and by palaeobotanical data. The three cold periods are characterized by a nearly treeless tundra vegetation and a continuous or discontinuous permafrost. Mean summer temperatures are estimated around or slightly below 10oC, while mean annual temperatures were below -6 to -4oC. - (Authors)
