Mise En Evidence D’une Alternance D’episodes Climatiques Pendant La Fin Du Pleistocene Superieur : Enregistrements Dans Les Depots Lacustres De Dayet Iffere (Moyen Atlas, Maroc)
AbstractIn northern Middle Atlas, the Dayet Iffère is located in an area affected by karst and tectonic. After its watershed genesis of middle altitude during the upper Pleistocene, two lacustrine formation were deposed. The detailed sedmentological study as well as the correlations between the different lacustrine formations defined in Dayet Afourgagh and Dayet Agoulmam, and the 14C dating allowed to reconstitute the major stages of the filling evolution of the lake basin and its sedimentary dynamic. The variations of sedimentation are interpreted as climatic fluctuations and evolution of vegetation since upper Soltanien. These results show a complex interaction between sedimentary processes and climatic phenomena that tend to a stability marked by heat, permanent humidity and a fairly dense vegetation cover at the end of the Soltanian, after probably a hot arid to semi-arid episode.
