Geodata of continuous and discontinuous permafrost during the last glacial maximum in Europe SFB806 doi Spatial Temporal

This geodata contains shapefiles of continous and discontinous permafrost during the last glacial maximum in Europe as published in Lehmkuhl et al. (accepted). The data is based on published maps (Andrieux et al., 2016; Ruszkiczay-Rüdiger and Kern, 2016; Vandenberghe et al., 2014). Further methodological information can be found in Lehmkuhl et al. (in press). A layer package file is included that can be used to obtain the same visual appearance as published. References Andrieux, E., Bertran, P.,...

Geodata of paleochannels on dry continental shelves in Europe during the last glacial maximum SFB806 doi Spatial Temporal

To investigate potential source areas of loess during the last glacial maximum, dry continental shelfs and their paleochannels were mapped for Europe (Lehmkuhl et al., accepted). The shapefile of dry continental shelf after Willmes (2015) was modified, as it did not include areas covered by ice. The shapefile was expanded using the LGM glaciation (Ehlers et al., 2011). Additionally, it was aligned to fit the used country shapefile (www.naturalearthdata.com) of the loess map. A layer package file can be used...

Geodata of northern timberline in Europe during the last glacial maximum SFB806 doi Spatial Temporal

This geodataset includes the northern timberline in Europe during the last glacial maximum as published in Lehmkuhl et al. (in press). It is based on Grichuk, 1992, but was modified. A layer package file can be used to obtain the same visual appearance as published. See further details in the publication. References Grichuk, V.P., 1992.

Geodata of European loess domains SFB806 doi Spatial Temporal

We present a new map of the distribution of aeolian sediments (mainly loess) and major potential source areas for Europe in Lehmkuhl et al. (in press). The map was compiled combining geodata of different mapping approaches. Most of the used geodata stems from accurate national maps of 27 different countries. Problematic aspects such as different nomenclatures across administrative borders were carefully investigated and revised. The result is a seamless map, which comprises pedological, geological, and...

Geodata of alluvial fill and fluvial deposits in Europe during the last glacial maximum SFB806 doi Spatial Temporal

For the investigation of potential source areas of loess in Europe, alluvial fill and fluvial deposits were mapped. The mapping is based on different national and pan-European datasets. The methodological approach is reported in Lehmkuhl et al. (in press). This geodataset contains a shapefiles of "alluvial fill and fluvial deposits" according to the European loess map published by Lehmkuhl et al. (in press). A layer package file can be used to obtain the same visual appearance as published. ...

Geodata of European loess, sandy loess and aeolian sand SFB806 doi Spatial Temporal

We present a new map of the distribution of aeolian sediments (mainly loess) and major potential source areas for Europe. The map was compiled combining geodata of different mapping approaches. Most of the used geodata stems from accurate national maps of 27 different countries. Problematic aspects such as different nomenclatures across administrative borders were carefully investigated and revised. The result is a seamless map, which comprises pedological, geological, and geomorphological data and can be...

OSL data of the Balta Alba Kurgan loess-paleosol sequence, Romania SFB806 doi Spatial Temporal

This is the DRAC file (cf. Durcan et al., 2015) used for age calculation of the optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) dating data from the Balta Alba Kurgan loess-paleosol sequence in Romania. This dataset corresponds to the luminescence age data published in Scheidt et al. (2020). The sample names in the first column are encoded as follows: Profile-number_sample-number_protocol. So for example sample BAK1_1_IR50 gives the results of conventional IRSL at 50°C measurements for sample no. 1 in profile BAK1....

Dead Sea pollen provides new insights into the paleoenvironment of the southern Levant during MIS 6-5 doi Spatial Temporal

The paleoclimate of the southern Levant, especially during the last interglacial (LIG), is still under debate. Reliable paleovegetation information for this period, as independent evidence to the paleoenvironment, was still missing. In this study, we present a high-resolution pollen record encompassing 147-89 ka from the Dead Sea deep drilling core 5017-1A. The sediment profile is marked by alternations of laminated marl deposits and thick massive halite, indicating lake-level fluctuations. The pollen...

Holocene vegetation history of the southern Levant based on a pollen record from Lake Kinneret (Sea of Galilee), Israel doi Spatial Temporal

Lake Kinneret, also known as the Sea of Galilee and Lake Tiberias, is located in the northeast of Israel. At a lake level of 211 m b.s.l. (below mean sea level), the central basin is 43 m deep. The maximum length of the lake is 21 km (N–S) and its maximum width is 12 km (W–E). Lake Kinneret’s surface area is 166 km². A new 17.8 m long sedimentary core was drilled in 2010. Here, we present the entire palynological record from it, which covers the last ~ 9,000 years. Special emphasis is given to the natural...

The “German Albanian Palaeolithic” Programme (GAP): A status report Temporal

Since 2009 the German Albanian Palaeolithic project (GAP) examines two open-air and three cave sites in different parts of Albania. The data obtained allow a first assessment of the potentials as well as challenges posed by these archives. While evidence for human occupation in the postglacial period and subsequent Holocene is plentiful, older traces are still scanty. Multiple factors are responsible for this bias of which to mention above all is climatic impact and postglacial landscape modification. Two...

The Aurignacian way of life: Contextualizing early modern human adaptation in the Carpathian Basin doi Temporal

The culture and dispersal of early modern humans are top priorities of many research agendas. While the debate primarily centers on genetics, dispersal trajectories and points of earliest presence, the context (climate, landscape, demography, culture) of the colonizing process is usually considered in a coarse-grained manner or even ignored. To understand the context of human dispersal and to decipher relevant push and pull factors requires the consideration of multiple environmental proxies and the...

Vegetation and climate during the Last Glacial high stand (ca. 28–22 ka BP) of the Sea of Galilee, northern Israel doi Spatial Temporal

Despite ongoing discussions on hydroclimatic conditions in the southern Levant during the Last Glacial, detailed knowledge about the Levantine paleovegetation, which is an important indicator for the paleoclimate, is limited. To investigate the paleovegetation in northern Israel, we analyzed the pollen assemblage of a sediment core that was drilled at the Ohalo II archaeological site on the southwestern shore of the Sea of Galilee (Lake Kinneret). We refined the lithology and the age-depth model with the...
