Eemian Interglacial

 

(from Eems, the Dutch name for the Ems River of the North Sea basin), the interglacial that separates the Saale (Riss) glacial from the Vistula (Würm) glacial in Western Europe. The Eemian interglacial occurred 120,000–130,000 years ago; it corresponds to the Mikulino interglacial in the European part of the USSR [seeANTHROPOGENIC SYSTEM (PERIOD)].
