Origin and palaeoclimatic significance of the Pleistocene slope covers in the Cracow Upland, southern Poland

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Periglacial slope covers in the southern part of the Cracow Upland can be grouped in 5 genetic categories : slope loess, washed loess, weathered debris, scree deposits, low-density flow deposits, and solifluctites or high-density flow deposits. They differ from each other with respect to their morphological position in relation to the slope, and in lithological characteristics. It was found that successive generations of slope deposits can be distinguished according to their degree of chemical weathering. This paper therefore contributes to a discussion on the possibility of paleoclimate reconstruction based on slope deposits analyses
