Challenges of loess formation models for the Carpathian Basin

Christian ZEEDEN, Slobodan B. MARKOVIĆ et al.


The general pattern of loess-paleosol sequences for the last several glacial-interglacial cycles in South-eastern Europe is becoming more established through an increasing amount of available data. However, the paleoclimatic mechanisms leading to these patterns are much less understood, especially the deviations from northern hemisphere patterns. Here we use relatively simple models to determine the effect of insolation forcing and global climate, as represented by benthic d18O data, onto loess-paleosol sequences
