Dynamics and extent of the Weichselian permafrost in western Europe (Substage 5E to stage 1)

Quaternary International, 3:109-113.

A paleoclimate sequence and a map of the successive extensions of the permafrost during the different stages of the Weichselian is proposed on the basis of cryopedological and paleopedological data. This work shows the existence of two periglacial cycles within the Weichselian; both are characterized by later permafrost in the oceanic provinces of Europe, compared with northern France and Belgium. Explanations are given for the origin of the Pomeranian and Dryas stadials.
