Rasova Loess-Paleosol Sequence

Created at 9.8.2016


The stratigraphic profile at Rasova - Valea cu Pietre, is located northeast of the village of Rasova in southern Dobrogea (Romania) and contains ~ 7m of loess deposits. It is located in a dry valley ca. 150 m east of the Danube and lies on the western edge of the Dobrogea Plateau and has therefore been exposed to fluvial erosion by the Danube at its base. This is indicated by the fluvial pebbles at the bottom of the profile (see photos)
