Reconstructing the paleotopography beneath the loess cover with the aid of an electromagnetic induction sensor


Reconstructing the paleolandscape at a detailed scale is almost impossible by conventional procedures based on soil augerings. Therefore, the use of the electromagnetic induction sensor was evaluated as an alternative for mapping the depth to the Tertiary clay substrate. As a test case, a study site in central Belgium was used where the paleolandscape prior to the deposition of the loess cover was formed in Tertiary marine clay. The results revealed distinct erosion patterns on the surface of the Tertiary clay
