Recent results of Pleistocene periglacial research in the Netherlands

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


Periglacial research as conducted by the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in the last decade is especially concerned with the reconstruction of former, Pleistocene, periglacial processes and environments. It has been focused on two themes: 1) the derivation of palaeoclimatic conditions from periglacial relict features and 2) the determination of the periglacial processes which have shaped the morphology of presently temperate zones during the Pleistocene. The results of this research have been presented and discussed by means of field examples at the occasion of the Symposium on "Periglacial Environments in relation to Climatic Change'. The highlights and main conclusions are briefly reported. -from Author
