Abstract

A complex interglacial sequence of lacustrine sediments has been found near the village of Turbuta in NW Romania. Mollusk, plant macrofossil, and pollen analyses reflect climatic and environmental changes around the last interglacial climatic optimum. U-Th TIMS dating of snails strongly indicates an Eemian age of the organic sediments.
