Glaciofluvial sandur sediments deposited by proglacial melt water occur as wide belts in front of the ice marginal zones of the Weichselian glaciation (Katzung & Muller 2004).
The presence of Picea abies and Larix sibirica within the interval 8500-7300 cal yr BP contributes to a growing recognition and insight that these species were regular components of the high-mountain flora within the entire extent of the Scandes, from south to north, during the early Holocene and late Weichselian (Kullman, 2002, 2008; Paus, 2010, 2013; Oberg and Kullman, 2011b; Paus et al., 2011; Carcaillet et al., 2012).

The "Lower Loess" is from the early to middle Lower Weichselian (MIS 5c-d), and after Semmel [31], a product of the first part of the glaciation (early Late Pleistocene, Figure 2), where, in this mountainous region, loess was deposited in a mammoth steppe environment.
Smaller-scale tectonic mobility was also noted in the Eemian Interglacial, Weichselian Late Glacial and at the beginning of the Holocene.
The researchers, who evaluated geochemical and pollen analyses of lake sediments in Saxony-Anhalt, Brandenburg and Russia, determined that in Central and Eastern Europe, the slow ransition from the Eemian Interglacial to the Weichselian Glacial was marked by a growing instability in vegetation trends with possibly at least two warming events.
Geological processes caused by the Weichselian glaciation and the changes in continental, lacustrine and marine environments over last 14 500 years have played an important role in relief formation and sediment distribution [18].
