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...

Environmental change indicated by grain-size variations and trace elements: An example from the sandy-loess sediments from the Doroshivtsy site (Ukraine) Spatial

The recently discovered loess section of Doroshivtsy became famous due to archeological findings of the Gravettian. The profile represents a about 9 m sequence of sandy loess, intercalated by more humic horizons. It is situated in a flat gully and at an undercut slope of the Dniester River close to the village Doroshivtsy in the south-western Ukraine. Radiocarbon dating and luminescence ages are conclusive within the expected age range of the Gravettian period (22-28 ka). The loess section is composed...

Geoarchäologische Untersuchungen in Ságvár (Ungarn) Spatial

Im Rahmen des SFB806 ‘Our way to Europe’ wurden im Herbst 2013 nahe der jungpaläolithischen archäologischen Stätte ‚Ságvár‘ (Ungarn) zwei Löss-Sequenzen beprobt. Die Profile befinden sich auf einer Hügekette südöstlich des Balaton in ca. 228 m Höhe an einem Hohlweg. Das erste Profil befindet sich auf einer Hügelkuppe, das zweite ca. 30 m hangabwärts. An den Sedimentproben wurden Korngrößenanalysen mittels Laserbeugung und geochemische Analysen mittels RFA Spektroskopie durchgeführt. Die...

Aeolian dynamics at the Orlovat loess-paleosol sequence, northern Serbia, based on detailed textural and geochemical evidence doi Spatial

Previous investigations showed that the Orlovat loess–paleosol section, northern Serbia, is characterized by irregularities in sedimentological properties, magnetic susceptibility and color of the sediment. Here, we applied granulometric analysis and X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyses to study how the sedimentation at the Orlovat site was conditioned by specific geomorphological or climatic conditions. Grain-size analysis is an established method and one of the most frequently used paleoenvironmental proxies...

LGM sealevel change (HiRes) Spatial PaleoMaps

Based on the GEBCO 2014 dataset [1], the area between the 0m coastline of today and the -120m coastline of the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), is derived and provided in this dataset. To achieve a more realistic and higher resoluting coastline, for producing larger scale maps, the gebco dataset was interpolated from the 30 arc seconds original resolution, to a 0,001 degree resoluting raster.

Radiocarbon-dating adhesive and wooden residues from stone tools by Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS): challenges and insights encountered in a case study doi Spatial

In this study we present and assess a process to enhance archaeological residue AMS dating by focusing on contaminant confinement. The sequence of methods applied consists of: 1) optical residue and usewear analyses, 2) experimental designs addressing cleaning treatments to mitigate impact of contaminants, 3) preparation and extraction of residues from (mostly) previously dated stone artefacts, and 4) establishing the elemental characteristics of residues by using SEM/EDX as a final step to avoid sample...

Quaternary climate change and Heinrich events in the southern Balkans: Lake Prespa diatom palaeolimnology from the last interglacial to present doi Spatial

Lake Prespa, in the Balkans, contains an important palaeo-archive in a key location for understanding Quaternary climate variability in the transition between Mediterranean and central European climate zones. Previous palaeoenvironmental research on sediment cores indicates that the lake is highly sensitive to climate change and that diatoms are likely to be strong palaeohydrological proxies. Here, we present new results from diatom analysis of a ca. 91 ka sequence, core Co1215, which spans the time from...
