Sedimentological dynamics of the Orlovat loess-paleosol sequence (Northern Serbia) show both local and regional paleoenvironmental fluctuations Spatial

The last glacial cycle as recorded in the Orlovat loess section (Northern Serbia) gives insight into both local and regional paleoenvironmental conditions. The Orlovat section is a unique section in the Carpathian Basin and it is characterized by irregularities in sedimentology, magnetic susceptibility, geochemistry and other paleoproxies. Therefore the local conditions need to be understood before making claims on a regional scale. Especially the grain size distribution indicates that the Orlovat site was...

Paleoenvironmental change as derived from loess sediment properties: Examples of last glacial loess sites from the Carpathian Basin Spatial Temporal

The project B1 within the CRC 806 “Our way to Europe” focuses on the "Eastern Trajectory" of modern human migration from Africa into Europe. The Middle East, and SE Europe constitute the principal areas to be investigated. SE Europe has become a special research focus since two early Homo sapiens individuals have been found at Oase Cave in the southern Banat. The fossils lack any stratigraphic context; cultural and environmental circumstances of these findings have remained unclear. In the...

Dust deposition during the Early Holocene on the loess plateaus of the Vojvodina region in Northern Serbia Temporal

The Northern Serbian province of Vojvodina is a lowland area encompassing the confluence of the Danube, Sava, Tisa (Tisza), Drava, Morava and Tamiš (Temes, Timi ̧s) rivers, which separate several remnant loess plateaus. Loess sediments in the Vojvodina region are among the oldest and most complete loess-paleosol formations in Europe. These thick sequences contain a detailed paleoclimatic record since the Early Pleistocene. The better preservation of Serbian loess-paleosol...

Concurrent and opposed environmental trends during the last climatic cycle between the Carpathian Basin and the Black Sea coast: evidence from high resolution enviromagnetic records from late glacial loess providing millennial environmental fluctuations Temporal

Aeolian dust sediments (loess) are beside marine/lacustrine sediments, speleothemes and arctic ice cores the key archives for the reconstruction of the Quaternary palaeoenvironment in the Eurasian continental mid-latitudes. The Eurasian loess-belt has its western end in the Middle (Carpathian) and the Lower Danube Basin where one can find true loess plateaus dating back more than one million years and comprising a semi-continuous record of Pleistocene environmental change. The loess-palaeosol sequences...

The Orlovat loess-paleosol section - link between lowland loess plateaus and upland hills slope loess sediments in the Pannonian Basin

Carpathian (Pannonian) Basin presents an important part of dispersal of the anatomically modern human (Homo Sapiens Sapiens sp.) corridor from Africa to Central Europe. This area currently lies at the border between Atlantic, Continental and Mediterranean climate zones and therefore is potentially extraordinarily sensitive to past and present climate change. During Quaternary, huge amount of loess deposits have been accumulated over Carpathian Basin. In frame of the CRC 806 “Our Way to Europe” project, we...

Middle to upper pleniglacial transition recorded in the loess profile of Krems-Wachtberg East Spatial Temporal

Loess research in Lower Austria has a long tradition and came back into focus of Quaternary research with new methodological approaches. Detailed paleoenvironmental information of the middle to upper pleniglacial transition is recorded in the Upper Paleolithic sites of Willendorf, Stratzing, Stillfried B, Grub and Krems-Wachtberg. The latter attracted international interest because of its unique infant burials. In the collaboration with archeologists, loess researchers profit from the integration of...

Investigating physical and chemical properties of last Glacial loess in the central Balkan region Temporal

The central Balkan region and the Carpathian/Pannonian Basin presents an important area for the dispersal of the anatomically modern human (Homo Sapiens Sapiens sp.) corridor from Africa to Central Europe. Last glacial loess and loess like deposits cover large parts of this region. In spite of widespread distribution of loess and loess-like deposits in the central Balkan and Carpathian Basin, information about the anatomically modern human occupation of these landscapes are rare. However, information about...

Analysis of Migration Processes due to Environmental Conditions between 40,000 and 14,000 a BP in the Eastern Mediterranean and Balkan region, Luminescence Dating Temporal

Integrated within the collaborative research centre 806 “Our way to Europe” this presentation focuses on the “eastern trajectory” of modern human migration to Europe. This route links the region with the earliest fossils of Homo sapiens sapiens (so far known) in the Middle East, Anatolia, the Balkans and the Northwestern Black Sea. The research emphasis of this project lies on the exact timing of the environmental conditions. To gain an understanding of past environmental conditions and variations, a...

Sedimentologische und geochemische Analysen des Sandlössprofils Doroshivtsi (West Urkaine)

The concerning sandy loess sequence, that extends to 9 meters, is situated on a slip-off slope of the Dnie-ster near Doroshivtsi in the south-west of the Ukraine. Since 2007, the section is investigated archaeolog-ically. This section is situated on the second terrace in the slope deposits. It is a remarkable sequence of seven consecutive achaeological layers, that are dated to the upper paleolithic. The area of the middle course of the Dniester was one of the most inhabited territories during the...
