The understanding of the climate system of the Earth’s, its present day state, and the prediction of its future states requires the detailed knowledge of its history. Sedimentary archives are the bases of almost any historical approach to the Earth’s climate system – the palaeoclimate research. Aeolian dust sediments (loess) are beside marine/lacustrine sediments, peat bogs and arctic ice cores the key archives especially for the reconstruction of the palaeoclimate in the Eurasian continental mid-latitudes. The Eurasian loess-belt has its western end in the Middle Danube (Carpathian) and the Lower Danube Basin. Like in the Chinese Loess Plateau and in the steppe areas of Central Asia and in the regions around the Caspian and the northern Black Sea one can find here true loess plateaus dating back more than one million years and comprising a semi-continuous record of the Quaternary palaeoclimate (Marković et al. 2011, 2012).
