Abstract

After the retreat of the glacier of the Drenthian-1 advance the Weser River cut a new path northwards to the Magdeburg-Bremen meltwater channel. The pebbles in gravel in samples taken from 99 boreholes up to 50 m deep were analyzed to distinguish between those from a nordic source and those from an indigenous (i.e. German) source, with the latter being divided into Mesozoic and Paleozoic rocks. The individual terrace sediment bodies can be identified on the basis of differences in the ratios of nordic, Mesozoic, and Paleozoic material. These terraces are represented in 13 transverse profiles and one longitudinal profile
