Late Quaternary ecosystem and climate interactions in SW Balkans inferred from Lake Prespa sediments Spatial Temporal

The transboundary Lake Prespa and its watershed enclose a remarkable biodiversity that is protected by several national and international treaties. Situated at 849 m a.s.l., the area is characterized by a transitional climate and the closed nature of the basin controls Lake Prespa’s modern hydrology. An 18 m-long sediment sequence was retrieved from a distal location, away from stream inflow, where preliminary hydroacoustic investigations suggested undisturbed sedimentation. Consequently, the sediments were...

Die Klima– und Umweltgeschichte des Balkans während des letzten Glazials und des Holozäns, rekonstruiert anhand von Seesedimenten des Prespasees (Mazedonien/Albanien/Griechenland) Spatial Temporal

Lake Prespa is one of the three largest lakes on the Balkan Peninsula and is, with a supposed age of more than three million years, one of the oldest lakes in Europe. The sediments of Lake Prespa constitute an invaluable climate archive for the Balkan region, which was sparsely inves-tigated. The focus of this study in the CRC 806 –Our way to Europe– is to reconstruct the cli-matic and environmental history of the Balkan region during the Late Glacial and Holocene on a high resolution. For this purpose, a...

Temporal and spatial corridors of Homo sapiens sapiens population dynamics during the Late Pleistocene and early Holocene doi Temporal

“Our Way to Europe – Culture-Environment Interaction and Human Mobility in the Late Quaternary” is a research initiative that is funded since July 2009 by the German Research Foundation (DFG) as a Collaborative Research Centre (CRC). The CRC 806 is based at the University of Cologne, University of Bonn and the RWTH Aachen University. The present special issue of Quaternary International compiles 17 contributions defining the starting points and describing first results of the CRC 806. All contributions...

Jungpleistozäne Küstenveränderungen am Roten Meer und die Ausbreitung des Modernen Menschen (B.Sc. thesis University of Cologne) Spatial Temporal

This Bachelor of Science thesis will show the changes of the coastal area of the Red Sea at the time of the Upper Pleistocene and their effects on the dispersal of anatomically modern humans (AMH). Thus insights about possible routes of migration of AMH out of Africa shall be gained. For this research the palaeoclimate, the sea level changes and the tectonic processes will be decribed. By reconstruction of coastal areas it will be shown that a trespassing of the Bab al-Mandab strait at the mouth of the Red...
