(a) Map of basins of the Rhine Glacier, modified after Ellwanger et al. (2011). Three different generations of basins can be identified bounded by D1–D3 unconformities. These unconformities correspond to the second advances of the Rhine glacier in the Würmian, Rissian and Hosskirchian ice ages.
(b) Geological map of the survey area of the Tannwald Basin showing the location of seismic reflection profiles 1–5 and the borehole location indicated by a star (Burschil et al.; 2018).
Location: (gps daten) East 9° 44‘ 55,11‘‘ / North 47° 59‘ 59,29‘, 587.85 m asl.
The site is situated to the north of Lake Constance, in an area previously covered several times by ice of Rhine Glacier. The location, however, lies outside the ice extents of the last glaciation. Detailed geophysical surveys have contributed to decipher the geometry of the overdeepened structure.
