The Saale-Glaciation has, in North-Germany, two major stages: the Drenthian (maximum extension) and the Warthe. Between these stages there is an interstadial of longer duration; the ice-border receded to the Baltic Sea. After the Warthe-stage followed the Eem-Interglacial with characteristic marine and continental deposits. The Weichsel-Glaciation was a cold period with minor interstadial fluctuations (like the Alleröd-Interstadial). There is no correspondence between the phases of the Weichsel-Glaciation and the MILANKOVITCH-curve. We are not entitled so far, to date Pleistocene events by the MILANKOVITCH-curve.
