Abstract

The AA. used a combined geomorphological, pedological, sedimentological and palynological approach to characterize landscape development after the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) near Lake Wygonin in Northern Poland. The pedostratigraphical findings from soil pits and drillings were extrapolated using ground-penetrating radar (GPR) and electric resistivity tomography (ERT). During the Pomeranian phase, glacial and fluvioglacial processes dominated the landscape near Lake Wygonin. At the end of the glacial period, periglacial processes became relevant and caused the formation of ventifacts and coversands containing coated sand grains. At approximately 15,290–14,800 cal yr BP, a small pond formed in a kettle hole. It is highlighted that Helianthemum is a prominent marker in the pollen spectra during the Younger Dryas. Land use induced soil erosion, the translocation started at about 1560–1410 cal BP. Since 540–460 cal BP forestry caused further soil erosion along the roads
