Abstract

Valerija Čepulyte (1904–1987) devoted her life to the development and promotion of geographical/geological research in Lithuania. The different aspects of Quaternary stratigraphy, palaeogeography, extent of the Last Glacial (Weichselian) and deglaciation of the territory, together with the development of the geomorphological terminology and methodology of the geomorphological mapping, were of primary interest to her during her long scientific career. Graduating from Vilnius University in 1939, Čepulyte became the first woman in Lithuania to take a doctoral degree in geographical science (1948) and in 1968 she was awarded the Doctor Habilitus degree. Her scientific innovations and ideas were important for generations of research workers dealing with the Quaternary system both in Lithuania and abroad.
