Abstract

The lithostratigraphic units in the Upper-Pleistocene Lys valley may be subdivided into two distinct populations, each with its own characteristic heavy mineral assemblage. The Eemian and Early Weichselian sediments originate mainly from the erosion of the Eocene deposits in the studied area. The overlying deposits and the youngest alluvial sediments were influenced by an eolian supply from the north, in this case from the bottom of the then aerially exposed North Sea. - (L'A.)
