Project: A chronologic study of the aeolian sands and silts deposited during OIS (Oxygen Isotope stage) 1 en 2, based on optically stimulated lumniscence -correlation of sediments in NE-Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany

01-JAN-06 – 31-OCT-11

The research program aims at a high resolution reconstruction of the different phases of aeolian sedimentation in northeastern Belgium during the Late pleniglacial, the Late Glacial and the Holocene. It involves a detailed chronometric study of the cover and drift sands and the intercalated silt layers with optically stimulated luminescence.
