Endorheische Becken in SW-Spanien: eine GIS-Vorerkundung zu weiterführenden Paläoumwelt-Studien Spatial

To understand paleoenvironment and its evolution, paleoenvironmental reconstruction is indispensable. Various climate archives containing data of several thousands of years allow conclusions about environmental conditions in prehistoric times. On the Iberian Peninsula such significant data can be found in lacustrine depositions in endorheic salt lakes. The Collaborative Research Centre 806 (CRC 806) established by the universities of Cologne, Bonn and Aachen examines the history and migration of humanity...

Geodata of "Loess and other Quaternary sediments in Germany" SFB806 doi Spatial Temporal

Geo- and palaeoecological studies focusing on the late Pleistocene require a detailed knowledge of the spatial distribution of aeolian sediments. In Germany existing maps are either on large scales, have a regional focus or show significant inaccuracies such as artificial boundaries within different geological units. To obtain a more detailed, seamless map of the distribution of aeolian sediments and their potential source areas, we combined and reanalysed available geo-data, using a Geographical...

GIS-basierte Distanzanalysen für die Modellierung von Einzugsgebieten prähistorischer Fundstätten SFB806 doi Spatial

Die Bewohner einer archäologischen Fundstätte müssen sich regelmäßig mit Ressourcen versorgen, dabei geht man davon aus, dass die Fläche die er dazu nutzen kann, durch seine fußläufige Mobilität begrenzt ist. Die Geschwindigkeit mit der der Mensch sich durch seine Umwelt bewegen kann, ist dabei, neben seiner physiologie, maßgeblich durch topographische Faktoren beeinflusst. Die Arbeit untersucht die Möglichkeit mit Hilfe von Berechnung der hangneigungsabhängigen Gehgeschwindigkeit Einzugsgebiete (Site...

Mapping the distribution of weathered Pleistocene wadi deposits in Southern Jordan using ASTER, SPOT-5 data and laboratory spectroscopic analysis doi Spatial

In the arid regions of the Levant, ancient wadi fills act as a terrestrial sedimentary archive with a high potential for preserving archaeological findings. This current study combines remote sensing with laboratory VIS-spectroscopy to investigate the spatial distribution of alluvial wadi fills in a small catchment in Southern Jordan. Due to its homogeneous sandstone geology, the composition of the alluvial sediments is highly influenced by the local bedrock whilst fluvial relocation and surface weathering...

Köppen-Geiger classifications of paleoclimate model simulations (Presentation)

The development and application of an algorithm to compute the Köppen-Geiger climate classification for CMIP/PMIP climate model data is described in this persentation. The classification algorithm is applied to data from the PMIP III paleoclimate experiments for the Last Glacial Maximum (21k yBP), Mid-Holocene (6k yBP) and the Pre-Industrial (0k yBP, control run) time slices. The input data was interpolated to infer higher resolution classification maps. The classification was implemented using Open Source...

Towards a Reconstruction of Land Use Potential - Case Studies from the Western Desert of Egypt doi Spatial

This chapter is situated in the field among archaeology, geomorphology, and ecology. Two case studies from different east-Saharan landscape units classify and analyse archaeological, geoscientific, and remote-sensing data of Early and Mid-Holocene archaeological sites. The section combines the approaches of landscape ecology and landscape archaeology. The aim is a parameterisation of the research areas with respect to structural and ecological features. The data were used within a Geographical...

PalaeoClimate Classifications (PMIP2 Köppen-Geiger) Spatial PaleoMaps

This dataset represents palaeo climate classification according to the updatede Köppen-Geiger [1] classification scheme. The classifiaction is derived from the PMIP2 [2] palaeoenvironmental simulations data for the time virables of LGM (21k), Mid-holocene (6k) and Pre-Industrial (0k). For the LGM, a LandMask consisting of the -120m coastline [3] was used, for the Mid-Holocene and Pre-Industrial classifications the coastlines of today [4] wehere used.
