Pleistocene paleosols in Norway : implications for past climate and glacial erosion

Special issue. Reconstruction and climatic implications of paleosols

Auteur :
OLSEN, L.

Description :
As recently as 7 years ago Quaternary geologists believed that there were no Pleistocene paleosols represented by non-peaty soil horizons (A, B, etc.) in Norway. However, several buried soils of this type have recently been reported and studied by stratigraphic, magnetic and chemical methods. The presence of these buried Pleistocene paleosols in the interior of Norway (central part of the Fennoscandian glaciations) indicates that glacial erosion was locally less during several glacial cycles than previously thought.
