The following list consists of dates of soil samples, partly produced in the former Bonn laboratory and bearing the code designations, BONN, and partly in the present dating lab at Hamburg University. The list comprises Mollisols and Inceptisols from Germany, sampled by layer and dated as whole soil, hydrolysis residue, and hydrolysate. Other profiles represent selected Australian Vertisols and Krasnozems, sampled by layer as well. Dates derived from marshes of the Elbe River as well as from paleosols buried by coastal levees are also included in the list. Pretreatment of soil samples is described in Scharpenseel and Pietig (1969) and Scharpenseel (1972; 1977).
