Geodata of 'Loess distribution and related Quaternary sediments in the Carpathian Basin' SFB806 doi Spatial

This set of data depicts the distribution of loess and related Quaternary sediments in the Carpathian Basin. Using a Geographic Information System (GIS), we compiled a map showing the distribution of loess and related Quaternary sediments in the Carpathian Basin, with unprecedented detail. We vectorized and analyzed existing data (mainly from geological maps) and combined and transferred these into a common (loess) sediment classification system. This cross-border map shows the distribution of eolian...

Three climatic cycles recorded in a loess-paleosol sequence at Semlac (Romania) – implications for dust accumulation in south-eastern Europe doi Spatial

Recent investigations of the Semlac loess section in the south-eastern Carpathian Basin, which is situated at an undercut slope position on the right bank of the Mureş River in its lower reaches (Banat region, western Romanian), are presented and discussed. Dating back to marine isotope stage (MIS) 10, the more than 10 m thick loess sequence includes four fossil soil-complexes developed in homogenous and relatively fine silty loess. Because of the good preservation of the sediment, Semlac is regarded as a...

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...

Top down: New satellite data and ground-truth data as base for a reconstruction of ancient caravan routes. Examples from the Western Desert of Egypt Spatial

Thanks to new satellite data, it is possible to examine deserts area-wide for linear structures. Additionally, digital elevation models can be use to evaluate the geomorphological situation. In conjunction with historical sources and ground-truth data, these data allow us, for the first time, to reconstruct the position of the caravan routes with reasonable accuracy, here exemplified for the extremely arid Western Desert of Egypt. On the central Egyyptian Limestone Plateau where stony ground (hamada, serir)...
