Preparation of a comprehensive palynological norwegian dataset for digital re-analysis and publication as Open Data SFB806 doi

The data management aspects to prepare a comprehensive palynological dataset, digitally collected and curated by Dr. Helge Høeg during his career as Palynologist in Norway since the 1970ies, for reuse with modern analysis methods and technologies and publication as Open Data, are discussed in this presentation. As presented on last years CAA, this dataset has distinguished potential to increase the knowledge of the norwegian paleoenvironment since the last ice age, for example by application of new machine...

The Wadi Sabra - A contextual approach to the Palaeolithic Landscape – Appendix SFB806 doi

This appendix contains further information on different topics of the CRC 806 Monograph The Wadi Sabra (Jordan) - A contextual approach to the Palaeolithic Landscape (Parow-Souchon 2020). It mainly deals with two different topics: "Appendix 1" includes a number of outsourced chapters focusing on the one hand on methodology, e.g. the treatment of databases, the method used for lithic illustration and the considerations and testing of the curation indices. On the other hand, this appendix add additional...

Distribution modeling of paleofauna in the Western Mediterranean between the Heinrich events H5 and H4 SFB806 doi Spatial Temporal

This master’s thesis deals with species distribution modeling (SDM) for eight selected prey animals of the Neanderthals and the anatomically modern human within the framework of the Collaborative Research Center 806 ("Our way to Europe"). This research was realized for three methods in three climatically different time slices during the Late Pleistocene. One profile method, one regression method and one machine learning method were used. A model was developed that performs these three methods in order to...

Supplementary data for "Distribution modeling of paleofauna in the Western Mediterranean between the Heinrich events H5 and H4" (master's thesis) SFB806 doi Spatial Temporal

This dataset is related to the master's thesis "Distribution modeling of paleofauna in the Western Mediterranean between the Heinrich events H5 and H4". The aim of the work was to generate a model for species distribution in the Western Mediterranean and to determine the best method in this context. By applying three different methods (Bioclim, GLM, MaxEnt) from the dismo package, R was used to predict the distribution of eight cold-adapted prey species in the Late Pleistocene. The Geographic Information...

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...

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...

Blazi Cave - an in situ Epigravettian site in Albania SFB806 doi

The Epigravettian site of Blazi cave represents so far the only undisturbed and securly dated Epigravettian site in Albania. The new data fill a research gap for the time of the Late Upper Palaeolithic in the Eastern Adriatic. During the GAP (German-Albanian Palaeolithic research project) campaign in 2015, a large sample of stone artefacts and animal bones was excavated. Their spatial distribution and good preservation indicate an in situ position of the archaeological layer. The tool spectrum contains a...

Carpatian Basin 30ky bp GIS data set SFB806 doi Spatial PaleoMaps

To provide paleoenvironmental data for a GIS and geostatistic based Species Distribution Modelling (SDM) application, this comprehensive GIS data set was created. The data set consists of DEM based topography, and of paleoclimate layers, that were used as environmental predictor variables for SDM application.

Mikromorphologische Untersuchung des spätpaläolithischen Fundplatzes Blazi Cave (Albanien) SFB806 doi

Im Verlauf dieser Arbeit werden auf eine geographische und archäologische Einordnung folgend, die zur Analyse angewandten Methoden und die daraus resultierenden Erkenntnisse dargestellt und diskutiert. Um die Ergebnisse, die unter anderem paläoklimatische Aspekte bereithalten chronologisch einzuordnen und einen Kontext mit der Paläoumwelt herzustellen werden die heutigen Klimabedingungen und mögliche Ausprägungen der Paläoumwelt des Untersuchungsgebietes vorgestellt (Kapitel 4) und mit verschiedenen...
