Sediments of the Eem Interglacial

The sediments of the Eem interglacial (humus sand, peat, gyttja, qee//Hm, Hn, F) can essentially be found only in the area of the Barnim plateau, and there mostly in the Panke Valley. They are as a rule confined to small-scale occurrence of very low thickness.

Till of the Saalian Glaciation

In the area shown, the ground moraine of the Saalian Glaciation (Warthe substage) is the oldest geological formation to a depth of 10 m. The Saale-stage till consists of weakly clayey, silty to strongly silty chalky sands, with a small proportion of gravel and stones (qs//Mg). Ice-age boulders can also be found occasionally.

Intralattice sands can also be found in the Saale-period till.

Due to its clay and silt portions, the till constitutes a binding sediment with very low water conductivity (aquitard).
