Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



In many sediment profiles of Central European floodplains, a black horizon is found between Late Glacial and midle to upper Holocene sediments. This horizon is rich in clay and humic material, and is referred to as Black Floodplain Soil (BFS). Its widespread occurrence in the Amöneburger Becken near Marburg (Hessen) provides some new insights into the period and circumstances of its development. As a polygenetic formation, the BFS is of special importance for paleoecological and archeological research
