In the young loess series of Basaharc type locality two stratotype paleosols occur ( " Basaharc Double " = BD1, BD2, and " Basaharc A " complexes) representing two marker horizons in the lower and middle part of young loess in Hungary. The " Basaharc Double " paleosol complex is a chernozem-like double forest-steppe soil horizon, its estimated age is 40-45 ka. The " Basaharc Lower " paleosol is a remarkably well-developed chernozem-like forest steppe soil. In the BD and BA paleosols charcoal fragments of Quercus cf. robur and Pinus cf. silvestris occur
