Terrasses fluviatiles du Pléistocène moyen en France septentrionale: signification dynamique et climatique. in Colloque AFEQ, Paris 1983. (Middle Pleistocene fluviatile terraces in northern France: dynamic and climatic significance)


The typical sequence of the lower terrace of Somme valley at Longpré-les-Corps-Saints (Somme, France) shows two series of pleniglacial formations (the lower being fluviatile) separated by deposits and soils which are related to the evolution of the penultimate Interglacial-Early Glacial. The erosion into the valley which is responsible of the terrace morphogenesis occurs formerly to the slope pleniglacial deposit corresponding to a new slope morphology. Similar data are furnished by the paleolithic site of the lower terrace of Scarpe Valley at Biache-Saint-Vaast (Pas-de-Calais) which is also disturbed by faults.
