Three profiles of loess-palaeosol sequences on top of Middle Pleistocene fluvioglacial terraces of the Traun-Enns-Plate are investigated in the region of Wels (Upper Austria), each of them representing characteristic Middle Pleistocene sequences for the northeastern Alpine Foreland. The sequences comprise thick pedocomplexes, providing the opportunity to distinguish and to classify specific interglacial palaeosols. The loess-palaeosol sequence of Oberlaab developed on top of the fluvioglacial terrace of the classical Mindel (Younger Deckenschotter) shows four interglacial palaeosols. This fact suggests that the age of the terrace is at least the fifth to last glacial period, correlative to MIS 12. The cover layers on top of classical Günz terrace (Older Deckenschotter) in Neuhofen and Wels-Aschet include five palaeosols. Both sites are characterised by intense pedogenesis in the basal pedocomplex, which is considerably more pronounced than in the overlying palaeosols. Pedostratigraphic results point out that the genesis of the studied Günz Deckenschotter can be correlated to MIS 16 (minimum age).
