Challenges of loess formation models for the Carpathian basin

The general pattern of loess-paleosol sequences for the last several glacial-interglacial cycles in South-eastern Europe is becoming more established through an increasing amount of available data. However, the paleoclimatic mechanisms leading to these patterns are much less understood, especially the deviations from northern hemisphere patterns. Here we use relatively simple models to determine the effect of insolation forcing and global climate, as represented by benthic d18O data, onto loess-paleosol...

Erosion or age overestimation? – the Urluia loess-palaeosol sequence

Aeolian deposits, such as loess, are considered the ideal material for luminescence dating. However, recent studies have revealed problematic discrepancies between different grain size fractions of quartz (e.g., Timar-Gabor, 2015). Nevertheless, the emergence of the pIRIR protocol (e.g., Thiel et al. 2011) gives us another useful tool for the investigation of loess-paleosol sequences, especially in higher dose ranges. This poster presents the luminescence investigation of 13 fine grain samples from the...

Comparison of fine grain quartz OSL and polymineral pIRIR measurements in the high dose range – examples from the Stalac loess-palaeosol sequence (Serbia)

The Stalać loess-palaeosol sequence (LPS) is located in the interior of the Central Balkan region, south of the typical loess distribution, in a zone of palaeoclimatic shifts between continental and Mediterranean climate regimes. Due to the scarcity of other LPS in this area, it is of interest for palaeoenvironmental studies and as such the geochronology is of uppermost importance. Six fine grain (4-11µm) samples of the section were investigated. Preheat plateau and dose recovery tests for one quartz...

Paleoenvironmental analysis of two loess profiles at the Ságvár Lyukas Hill in western Hungary

Paleoenvironmental investigations are undertaken for two loess profiles at the Ságvár Lyukas Hill in western Hungary. The site is known for its Upper Paleolithic findings. It is located ca. 12 km south-east of Siofok at Lake Balaton within a loess landscape, which exhibits dominantly northwest-southeast striking valleys. Granulometric, geochemical, rock magnetic and luminescence analyses were carried out.

Lössverbreitung im Pannonischen Becken - Problematik grenzüberschreitender Geodaten und Lösungsansätze mit GIS für eine Beispielregion (Grenzregion Ungarn-Rumänien) Spatial

To create a map showing the distribution of loess sediments in the Pannonian Basin in the border region of Hungary and Romania several different cross-border spatial data had to be used. Particularly there were problems because of the thematically content of the underlying international geodata, but also because of geodetical basics like projections and lingual barriers, respectively. To solve these identified problems some solutions were made e.g. by using the EU-INSPIRE-directive. However, the most...

Late Pleistocene Rockshelter Stratigraphies and Palaeoenvironments in Northeastern Africa - Case Study Mochena Borago (Ethiopia)

Multiskalige Untersuchungen zur Rekonstruktion geomorphologischer Prozesse im Abri Mochena Borago (Äthiopien) und seinem Einzugsgebiet Spatial Temporal

In prehistoric times the rock shelter Mochena Borago served as a retreat for anatomically modern humans in the southwestern Ethiopian Highlands. During the last decade archaeo-logical analyses helped to gain insight into the history of settlement of the rock shelter in the last 50 ka. Element and micromorphological analyses as well as computer-supported large scale investigations for sediment sources and transport into the rock shelter itself were carried out to understand the depositional history of...
