It was made on a gyttja
bulk sample taken from a borehole which was situated 740 m NW from the Palanga site (Fig.
The percussion coring of the basin further showed that coarse diamicton is overlain by coarse, granite-rich, moderately sorted sediment which, in turn, is overlain by alternating layers of gyttja
and wetland sediment.
deposition initially occurred in the third bog and then was followed by marl deposition.
The sediments in all the studied cores consisted of dark-brown unconsolidated, highly porous, homogeneous gyttja
and fluvial sediment layers rich in molluscs, identified under peats and 1.
The analysed sediments consisted of brownish gyttja
of high organic matter content (loss-of-ignition (LOI) 60-86%) and high porosity (95-98% of water).
In buried conditions patches of peat and gyttja
were sealed and preserved up to the present, offering material for radiocarbon dating.
Stratigraphy: Characteristic of limnic sediments, in silt, clay, gyttja
, and marl.

Surficial organic deposits are not common on the Ohio till plain; however, three houses in the north Columbus neighborhood of Sharon Woods had to be leveled owing to structural damage from sinking into peat and gyttja

In the region of TVII and TIX drillings, small water bodies existed in the Late Weichselian, which was confirmed by the presence of lacustrine sediments: at TVII - lacustrine chalk and calcareous gyttja
, and in the vicinity of TIX - lacustrine chalk, calcareous gyttja
and medium-detritus gyttja
