Towards modelling of loess-paleosol sequence formation

Christian ZEEDEN, Ulrich HAMBACH, Slobodan MARKOVIC, Igor OBREHT, Frank LEHMKUHL


A simple modelling approach of loess-paleosol sequences combining both local insolation (as represented by a combination of precession and obliquity; p-0.5t) and a global climate signal (represented by the LR04 benthic oxygen isotope stack) is presented. Aim is the combination of these signals and the setting of threshold values to mimic loess-paleosol formation in the Pannonian Basin. As a good fit dies not necessarily imply a causal link, results require critical discussion.
