Paleoenvironmental reconstruction of loess-paleosol sequences in Serbia and Hungary - first luminescence data Spatial

Paleoenvironmental conditions in southeastern Europe may be important for modern human migration investigated within the CRC 806 “Our way to Europe”. Results of a multi-proxy approach on loess-paleosol sequences is presented.

Danube loess – paleoenvironmental record and potential eastern European corridor for the dispersal of modern humans Spatial

An international and interdisciplinary team is working on different proxy data for the paleoenvironmental reconstruction of the last glacial cycle as recorded by loess and similar terrestrial deposits. Our group focuses on loess sections, archaeological open air sites and cave sediments. The major topic is the environmental background of migration pathways of Anatomically Modern Humans (AMH) from Africa into Europe. We focus on Early Upper Palaeolithic sites in selected morphological positions....

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

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

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

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

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

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...
