Short characteristics of the site: Boskovice Graben, Permocarboniferous. Ill-sorted coarse grained sandstones and conglomerates contain several limestone interlayers, about 100 cm thick. They are interpreted as calcrete deposits formed in a vadose zone of flood plains in semiarid climate. Interesting example of Permian fluvial sediments and formation of pedogenic calcrete layers.
