Abstract

The historical overview includes the definition of loess, the origine of loess, a classification of the different terrestrial loesses, a nomenclature system for loess and loess-like sediments, and the origin of the word " loess " itself. Different sedimentary structures occurring in the Belgian loess deposits are also described. The second part of the paper focuses on the spatial distribution of loess deposits in the landscape and on the physical problem of loess sedimentation. - (Author)
