Pleistocene cryogene processes on the summit of the Stránská skála Hill in Brno and their palaeoclimatic significance
Many archaeological investigations on the summit of the NW part of the Stránská skála Hill have been done in last years. Below the youngest Vistulian loess Pleniglacial frost phenomena (especially gelifluction and cryoturbation) are common, indicating cold environment. It is supposed that the MAAT during longer period of the coldest climate in the Vistulian Pleniglacial in upland areas of South Moravia could have been up to -5 °C. MAAT at Stránská skála during short episodes is estimated to have reached as much as about -8 °C.
