Abstract

The paper deals with a proposal of constructing a model of formation of the specific Carpathian variety of loesses during the Vistulian. It is based on the observation and measurements of the actual activity of winds, the occurrence of blowouts containing lacustrine-boggy deposits of Allerod-Holocene age, as well as on the occurrence of ventifacts and covers of radiocarbon dated Plenivistulian anemoclastic silty-clayey sediments, a dozen or so metres thick.
