Abstract

Stratotype profiles of fossil soils of the Late Vistulian and Holocene developed from alluvial and aeolian sediments were recognized. Different analyses and radiocarbon dating of organic substance enabled to distinguish diagnostic pedostratigraphic horizons, what allowed to determine the age and produce a typology of soils. On the basis of soil dating, indirectly a precise determination of alluvial and aeolian processes in the Warsaw Basin was carried out. The bottom of organic substance of the oldest among fossil soils in the Warsaw Basin was dated for 13,340 years B.P. The mineral sediments of this horizon are still older
