Abstract

Stratigraphic, palynological, sedimentological, geophysical and mollusc analyses of 3 peat cores from palaeomeanders in the floodplain of the Southern Palatine Upper Rhine river valley were used to reconstruct interrelations between palaeohydrologic, palaeoclimatic and geomorphodynamic changes throughout the genesis of the floodplain. Since the Younger Iron Ages, the vegetation in the floodplain was influenced by humans. The high peat accumulation rates are further evidence for good peat formation conditions in the Younger Holocene. Sediment layers within the upper peat layers of the palaeomeanders show a vast increase of flood activity of the Upper Rhine river since the High- and Late Middle Ages. From that time onwards huge areas of the Rhine river floodplain were flooded periodically
