Stratigraphy and lithology of the loess deposits in eastern Srem, Serbia

Nenadić Draženko, Simić Vladimir

Eolian loess sediments in the eastern Srem area, the youngest Pleistocene deposits, occur either as a loess plateau, or as a slope-type of loess, formed on the slopes of the Fruška Gora mountain. Lithological, sedimentological, and mineralogical characteristics of these sediments, which were studied from several common clay deposits and boreholes, demonstrated differences between them and the underlying pre-loess sediments, and supported the stratigraphic division of the Quaternary sediments.
