Luminescence characteristics of quartz grains from the Titel Loess Plateau

The Titel loess plateau in the Vojvodina region of Serbia is considered to contain the most detailed terrestrial paleoclimatic records in Europe, with a thick and apparently continuous record extending through the middle and late Early Pleistocene. In the past few decades the plateau has been investigated on a fairly large scale and has provided important records of climatic and environmental changes during the Pleistocene in this part of Europe. Regardless the extensive research in the past, high detailed...

Prevailing winds in Northern Serbia: recent data, geomorphological evidences and numerical Simulations

The prevailing winds are explored in Northern Serbia, examining the aeolian processes, especially in the southeastern part of the Carpathian (Pannonian) Basin in the area in and around the Banatska Peščara (Deliblato Sands). In this study, four different methodological approaches were used. The first two approaches are based on the identification of prevailing winds using climatological data on winds and synoptic data on atmospheric circulations from the recent period. Geomorphological records and numerical...

The Crvenka loess-paleosol sequence (Vojvodina, Northern Serbia)- a record of continuous domination of the Late Pleistocene grasslands

In this study we present a comparison of two independent paleo-environmental evidences: novel n-alkane biomarkers and traditional land snails assemblages, associated with widely used proxy records such as the low field magnetic susceptibility, grain size and various isotopic and geochemical indices. These paleo-environmental proxy records provide evidence for the continued predominance of the different grassland vegetation types during the entire Late Pleistocene. The results presented in this study...

Towards multi-proxy based millennial time scales in Late Pleistocene Danubian Loess-Palaeosol Sequences. Spatial

Late Pleistocene palaeoclimatic records for south-eastern Europe rely largely on loesspalaeosol equences (LPSS). The general spatial scarcity and often limited temporal range of other sedimentary archives assign the LPSS of the region a key role even in millennial scale temporal reconstructions of the Late Pleistocene terrestrial environmental dynamics. In Eurasia, aeolian dust sediments (loess) are widespread in continental mid-latitudes. The Eurasian loess-belt has its western end in the Middle Danube...

Three climatic cycles recorded in a loess-palaeosol sequence at Semlac (Romania) – implications for dust accumulation in the Carpathian Basin and the northern Hemisphere Spatial

Semlac is regarded as a key section for the Carpathian Basin because of the good preservation of the fine silt. The site is situated at the Mureş River in its lower reaches (Banat region, western Romanian). The more than 10 m thick loess sequence includes four fossil sol-complexes developed in homogenous relatively fine silty loess and dates back to marine isotope stage (MIS) 10. This setting offers possibilities to a) improve the understanding of the type and composition of the lowland loess sequences in...

Tracing the Mediterranean climate influence over the central Balkans (southeast Europe) during the past 350 ka Spatial

Knowledge of past climate variability based on the study of paleoclimate archives may help in better understanding the forcing mechanisms and extent of any future climate change. In some regions, such as Eastern Europe, loess-paleosol sequences (LPS) are one of the most important terrestrial archives of Quaternary paleoclimate and its spatial and temporal dynamics. Studies of LPS from the Middle and Lower Danube basins fundamentally improved understanding of the European Quaternary climate and environmental...

Landscapes and Paleolandscapes in south-eastern Europe during Late Quaternary and their relevance for human habitats and dispersal Spatial

Pleistocene landscape dynamics affect climatic and environmental conditions, and may have had a major impact on modern human habitats. In this contribution, reconstructions of modern and late Pleistocene environments based on landscape evolution models are presented and discussed following a series of transects from the Pannonian Basin to the Black Sea. These transects include geomorphological features and landscapes like loess plateaus, dune fields, alluvial plains, the Carpathian Mountains, and their...

Challenges of loess formation models for the Carpathian basin

The general pattern of loess-paleosol sequences for the last several glacial-interglacial cycles in South-eastern Europe is becoming more established through an increasing amount of available data. However, the paleoclimatic mechanisms leading to these patterns are much less understood, especially the deviations from northern hemisphere patterns. Here we use relatively simple models to determine the effect of insolation forcing and global climate, as represented by benthic d18O data, onto loess-paleosol...

Erosion or age overestimation? – the Urluia loess-palaeosol sequence

Aeolian deposits, such as loess, are considered the ideal material for luminescence dating. However, recent studies have revealed problematic discrepancies between different grain size fractions of quartz (e.g., Timar-Gabor, 2015). Nevertheless, the emergence of the pIRIR protocol (e.g., Thiel et al. 2011) gives us another useful tool for the investigation of loess-paleosol sequences, especially in higher dose ranges. This poster presents the luminescence investigation of 13 fine grain samples from the...
