Environmental change indicated by grain-size variations and trace elements: examples from two different sections - the sandy-loess sediments from the Doroshivtsy site (Ukraine) and the loess section Semlac (Romania)

Abstract

Loess sequences provide important and at least a partial continuous record of Quaternary
palaeoenvironmental change; some of the sequences even bury archaeological remains. In addition,
loess-palaeosol sequences provide valuable information concerning environmental change and
climate evolution. In this study, we compare two sections: (1) The Middle to Late Pleistocene loesspaleosol
section of Semlac in western Romania (MIS 10 – 1), and (2) the sandy-loess section of
Doroshivtsy in western Ukraine (MIS 2). To characterize these quite different sections we calculated
individualized grain size (GS) ratios and compared them to the common U-ratio (Vandenberghe et al.,
1985) and selected geochemical parameters.
