Alpine Glacial Sequence

Older standard glacial sequence for the Pleistocene, proposed in 1909 by A. Penck and E. Brückner.

See Günz, Mindel, Riss, and Würm glacial maxima, and Günz-Mindel (Cromerian), Mindel-Riss (Holstein), and RissWürm interglacials (or interstadials). The quadrate Alpine sequence has recently been modified and extended as the Emiliani-Shackleton glacial sequence.
