• Geochronology of the Holocene of the Belorussian Polessie

      Matveev, A. V.; Krutous, E. A.; Zernitskaya, V. P. (Department of Geosciences, The University of Arizona, 1993-01-01)
      We distinguished major stages of the last glaciation (Bulling, Older Dryas, Allerod, Younger Dryas) and the Holocene by radiocarbon dating and paleobotanical analyses. Our paleobotanical investigation of peatlands is well correlated with independent 14C data. We establish that the Atlantic and Subboreal stages of the Holocene have three divisions, and that the Subatlantic has two.
    • Geochronology of the Pleistocene and Holocene in the Fore-Urals

      Latypova, E. K.; Yakheemovich, B. L. (Department of Geosciences, The University of Arizona, 1993-01-01)
      The paper presents the results for the 14C dating obtained recently in the Laboratory of the Institute of Geology, Ufa Science Centre, Russian Academy of Science, on the basis of megafaunal bones, peats, wood and mollusk shells. Dates are reported in stratigraphic sequence from the Late Wurmian to the Holocene.
    • Late Pleistocene Geochronology of European Russia

      Arslanov, Kh A. (Department of Geosciences, The University of Arizona, 1993-01-01)
      I constructed a Late Pleistocene geochronological scale for European Russia employing 14C dating and paleobotanical studies of several reference sections.
    • Possibilities for Detailed Dating of Peat Bog Deposits

      Punning, Jaan-Mati; Ilomets, Mati; Koff, Tiiu (Department of Geosciences, The University of Arizona, 1993-01-01)
      Geochemical and palynological data as well as radiocarbon dating were used to study the peat bog deposits in Niinsarre bog, northeast Estonia. The aim of this study was to establish criteria for determining a detailed chronology, which is important, for example, in studying paleoevents and historical monitoring. In some cases, we can use cumulative pollen data, as well as cumulative chemical and peat bulk density data.
