Abstract

Nine TL dates were obtained from a section at Rocourt. The dates were self-consistent. A date of 24.8 + 2.1 ka for a sample from the base of the Upper Weichselian loess indicated that it was part of the massive loess sheet deposited in Europe about 25 thousand years ago. The overlying decalcified loess gave dates indicating deposition after the glacial maximum. However, the proposed chronology is in disagreement with that based on radiocarbon dates on humic material. - (L'A.)
