In the proximal zone of the Wda outwash the occurrence of eight outwash levels associated with the outflow of glacial meltwater from the Pomeranian phase was confirmed. Within the outwash a number of subglacial channels and kettle-holes occurs. Part of these landforms is filled with organic sediments — peat and gyttja up to 15 m in thickness. The oldest sediments from the base of these sediments are of Boiling age — dating 14 C is 12 170-t 250 yr BP.
