The Matuyama–Brunhes boundary (MBB) where the Earth's magnetic field changed to its present orientation is one of the most frequently used time markers in continental Quaternary stratigraphy. Although magnetic signals have been successfully recovered from loess deposits and an apparently coherent magnetostratigraphy seems to be in place, a close examination of the published loess records from northern mid-latitudes reveals significant uncertainty and variability for the position of the MBB.
