Abstract

The paleogeographic and particularly palaeoclimatic evolution in the Congo at the end of the Quaternary has been investigated thoroughly with a study of grain surfaces using the scanning electron miscroscope. The succession of distinct physicochemical environment marks is characterized with the help of other methods (radiocarbon, micropaleontology). During a still-existing tropical climate, arid periods are contemporaneous with regressive phases (eolian, fluviatile, or pedogenetic reliefs of the grains) and humid periods correspond to transgressive phases (infratidal, intertidal, deltaic, lagoonal marks).
