It currently says "sometimes called ... etc." What is the et cetera? Is there a naming scheme? Why are they named this? Andrew Keenan Richardson 04:35, 4 June 2010 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Quantumelfmage (talk • contribs)
Definition of "Stadial"
- A stadial is a period of lower temperatures during an interglacial (warm period) separating the glacial periods of an ice age.
Is this definition really correct, and is it complete? In German usage, the term Stadial is used -- at least mainly, it seems -- to refer to a period of lower temperatures within a glacial, and is contrasted with Interstadial, which refers to a period of higher temperatures within a glacial. --Neitram (talk) 16:10, 23 July 2012 (UTC)
I agree, the same holds for the dutch definition, it seems to have gone wrong in the edit "(cur | prev) 10:02, 18 November 2006 188.8.131.52 (talk) . . (429 bytes) (+145) . . (corrections and additional facts.)" But then again, I am not an expert, so it would be great if someone who knows could verify. The links with background information at the dutch page are currently unavailable, so, unfortunately, no help there. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Valérie Boor (talk • contribs) 11:20, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
