Abstract

The aim of this paper is to explain the origin of the relatively high carbonate content in the youngest glacial deposits in the central part of western Pomerania, NW Poland, and the role of their contemporary circulation in the post-glacial landscape. The landscape was affected by the Pomeranian Phase of the last glaciation, dated to 16 200 years BP. The problem of the origin of CaCO3 in glacial and fluvioglacial sediments is considered with reference to the results of studies of currently glaciated areas in Spitsbergen. A model of cryochemical enrichment of the calcium carbonate in these deposits is developed
