We present the palaeomagnetic examination of the Middle to Upper Pleistocene loess/palaeosol sequence in the former pit ‘Würzburger’ located in Aschet near Wels. Five strongly developed palaeosols, respectively pedocomplexes alternate with interposing loess loam. By means of excavation access was gained to a profile with a thickness of 12 m. Altogether, 587 orientated samples were taken for the magnetostratigraphic analysis at the Paleomagnetic laboratory of the Montanuniversität Leoben, ensuring a near-complete sampling. The samples were demagnetised by means of alternating field as well as thermal demagnetisation. The magnetic parameters show a sequence of sections with strong magnetite formation in the soil, which can be assigned to the relatively warm climate of interglacial periods. The majority of samples showed characteristic remanence directions within the range of the normal global magnetic field of the Pleistocene. Some sections showed strongly deviating remanence directions, indicating excursions of the global magnetic field. The excursions observed in the Wels-Aschet profile are assigned to the time interval of 570 ka (Emperor-Big Lost-Calabrian Ridge) until 110 ka (Blake) due to palaeopedological-stratigraphical considerations. The Brunhes/Matuyama-Boundary (776 ka) was not reached.
