Sažetak
Introduction: The loess-palaeosol sequence at Zmajevac, Croatia is a valuable high-resolution terrestrial archive of paleoenvironmental changes for the Middle and Upper Pleistocene period. The sequence is about 28 m thick and consists of six loess horizons, intercalated by at least (Galović, 2014) five palaeosols and laminated alluvial sand. First dating results showed that these deposits were formed during the Middle and Late Pleistocene cold stages (Galović et al., 2009) during a climate which was much colder than today (Banak et al., 2016). The cyclicity of the changing climate during that time is reflected in the terrestrial gastropod remains in the investigated deposits (Banak et al., 2012 ; Molnár et al., 2010). Methods and Materials: In this study a high- resolution multidisciplinary study was applied for the loess-palaeosol sequence at Zmajevac. Post-IR IRSL dating was applied to establish a more reliable chronological framework. Grain- size and magnetic susceptibility (MS) measurements were performed in 2 cm resolution to reconstruct some paleoenvironmental proxies like precipitation, wind intensity and direction. Detailed clay mineralogical analyses using the X-ray powder diffraction (XRPD) on random mounts of bulk samples and oriented mounts of the <2 μm fraction, accompanied by heavy mineral analysis of the silty fraction, were performed to determine the provenance of the material as well as their connection to paleoclimate changes. Additionally, carbon and oxygen stable isotope measure-ments (δ13C and δ18O) were performed on gastropod shell samples for detailed insight into paleoprecipitation and paleoclimate conditions. Palynological analyses were performed for paleoecological reconstructions. Statistical modelling of grain size distribution was performed to describe compositional trends in sediments, as well as its relation to MS. Results and Discussions: Dating results reveal intensive sedimentation during the last 300 ka which was five times interrupted by soil forming periods, as LoessFest2017, 08-12October, Gorgan, Iran 33 evidenced by the palaeosols intercalating the loess, the grain size and MS results. The laminated horizon is probably the result of deciduous water activity during the end of the Penultimate Glacial period, probably due to initial climate change. According to the provenance analyses based on heavy minerals associations of the silty fraction, the main sources of the material were predominantly located in the Alpine region and subordinately the Dinaride Ophiolite Zone in Bosnia (Galović, 2016). A greater amount of smectite in the older horizons of loess may indicate a stronger input of local volcanic rocks. Deciduous trees pollen from the loess deposits, suggest the existence of refugee areas in the vicinity during the glacial periods. Redeposited dinocysts indicate erosion of the Miocene basement deposits.
