Tracing the Influence of Mediterranean Climate on Southeast Europe during the past 350,000 years doi

Loess-palaeosol sequences are valuable archives of past environmental changes. Although regional palaeoclimatic trends and conditions in Southeastern Europe have been inferred from loess sequences, large scale forcing mechanisms responsible for their formation have yet to be determined. Southeastern Europe is a climatically sensitive region, existing under the strong influence of both Mediterranean and continental climates. Establishment of the spatial and temporal evolution and interaction of these...

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...

A Multi-Proxy Analysis of two Loess-Paleosol Sequences in the Northern Harz Foreland

Within the second phase of the “Collaborative Research Centre 806 (CRC806) – Our Way to Europe – Culture-Environment Interaction and Human Mobility in the Late Quaternary” two loess-paleosol sections in the northern Harz foreland are being investigated. The region is part of the Northern European loess belt. The northern edge of the loess distribution is characterized by an interlocking of Weichselian silt and sand sized aeolian sediments. To the south the Northern European loess belt is limited by the...

Umweltbedingungen während des letzten Glaziales im nördlichen Harzvorland

In dem Sonderforschungsbereich 806 (SFB 806) "Unser Weg nach Europa - Interaktion von Um-welt und Homo Sapiens während des letzten Spätglaziales" ist das Teilprojekt D1 "Analyse von Migrationsprozessen bedingt durch Um-weltbedingung zwischen 40.000 und 14.000 Jahren im Rhein-Maas-Gebiet" angesiedelt. Im Zuge des Projektes wurden unter anderem auch Löss-Paläoboden-Sequenzen (LPS) im nördli-chen Harzvorland aufgenommen und analysiert. Hierbei wurden anhand verschiedener geoche-mischer, farblicher und...

Aragonite and calcite preservation in sediments from Lake Iznik related to bottom lake oxygenation and water column depth doi

This study examines the forcing mechanisms driving long-term carbonate accumulation and preservation in lacustrine sediments in Lake Iznik (north-western Turkey) since the last glacial. Currently, carbonates precipitate during summer from the alkaline water column, and the sediments preserve aragonite and calcite. Based on X-ray diffraction data, carbonate accumulation has changed significantly and striking reversals in the abundance of the two carbonate polymorphs have occurred on a decadal time scale,...

Towards a revised stratigraphy for the Middle to Upper Palaeolithic Transition at La Güelga (Narciandi, Asturias, Spain) - Micromorphological investigations and new radiocarbon data

The archaeological sequence of the Palaeolithic site of La Güelga apparently shows an interstratification of Aurignacian between Mousterian and Châtelperronian layers, a sequence which disagrees with the stratigraphic model for the Middle to Upper Palaeolithic transition in SW-Europe. We analyzed the witness section of the interior sector in archaeological zone D using micromorphology and collected new radiocarbon dates for the Aurignacian and presumably Châtelperronian levels in order to provide...

Neolithic transition and lithic technology: The Epipalaeolithic and Early Neolithic assemblages of Ifri Oudadane, NE-Morocco

Ifri Oudadane represents one of the few recently excavated sites in NW-Africa which permits a study of the Neolithic transition. The site is dated by 23 radiocarbon ages suggesting an occupation between 11.0 and 5.7 ka calBP. The well-documented Neolithic transition occurred at about 7.6 ka calBP. This transition is marked by the appearance of pottery, cereals and legumes. Furthermore, geochemistry and micromorphology indicate several changes in the sedimentation milieu. One of the most interesting...
