Numerous deformation structures of various shapes and internal structures (drop-like and pocket-like structures, folds, streaks and diapirs) are present in the Weichselian alluvial terrace sands and loams of the Wisłok river (Sandomierz Basin, southeast Poland). A detailed study of the structures leads to the conclusion that they originated from cryostatic pressure, gravitational loading of sediments with reversed density gradient and thermokarst. The aim of OSL dating was to determine the age of sandy sediments underlying and overlying organic sediments in the Łukawiec profile, and thereby to determine the time when drop-like and pocket-like structures developed
