Pollen analysis and stable isotope analysis for Rotsee sediment cores revealed three major climatic changes during the Late-Glacial period. AMS-14C ages for 59 terrestrial plant macrofossil samples provide a high-resolution time scale for those climatic changes. The cores suggest two periods of constant radiocarbon ages: at 12,600 and at 10.000 yrs B.P. Both coincide with phases of climatic warming. A new correlation between chrono- and palynostratigraphy is proposed on the basis of the presented hardwater error free AMS-dates.
