In the area of the village Kolliken, which is situated southwest of Aarau (Swiss plateau), several corings were carried out in order to provide information about the geology and hydrogeology of a hazardous waste disposal site. Core KB 10 revealed three silty organic layers, which were studied by means of pollen analysis. The underlaying minerogenic layer consists of reworked lodgment till, the overlaying layer is a loess-like loam. The pollen records revealed sequences of two interstadials. The first interstadial (Kölliken I) is dominated by Picea and Pinus, whereas Abies appears only in small amounts. From the second interstadial (Kölliken II) only the initial phase is recorded. This phase is characterized by the expansion of Betula and Pinus. The bio- and chronostratigraphic positions of both interstadials are discussed in detail; they most probably belong to the Early Würm.
