Description :
A database of 335 radiocarbon dates from Holocene fluvial sediments in Poland has been compiled. All samples were grouped into one of 7 regions characterized by hydrological regime, and one of 8 depositional environments. Statistical analysis was used to enhance the palaeoenvironmental data and 17 phases may be distinguished. Abandoned paleochannels clearly reflect the major wetter phases of the Holocene. An opposite picture is presented by oberbank aggradation connected mainly with expansion of agriculture.
