Abstract

The argillic horizon developed in the Weichselian loesses of western Europe can be related to mechanical clay translocation under a cold climate following a period of decarbonatation. In several sites from Brittany to southern Poland where the pedostratigraphical record was preserved, the Bt formation can be mainly attributed to the Bolling Inteerstadial. Younger events exist also in the Early Holocene. In most of these sites, Holocene pedogenesis is reduced to an acidification of even a podzolization in the former eluvial horizon. - (L'A.)
