Trapped in terms - the Protoaurignacian and early Aurignacian of Northern Spain

57th Annual Meeting of the Obermaier Society at Heidenheim 2015. Special Session on Symbolic communication and modern culture Yvonne Tafelmaier* (Mettmann) – Trapped in terms - the Protoaurignacian and early Aurignacian of Northern Spain Beyond doubt the appearance of the Aurignacian marks a turning point in the history of human evolution. By stressing the techno-typological differences, the Proto-Aurignacian on the one hand and the early Aurignacian on the other hand are said to reflect two...

A QGIS plugin to interface openModeller SFB806 doi

This is a plugin for QGIS to interface the openModeller software package. OpenModeller is a software framework for species’ potential distribution modelling. The package includes (among other program files) the om_console.exe executable which is used for the modelling process. The program file is controlled by a configuration file and needs several files as input data. The configuration file contains the paths to the input data, configuration parameters for the output data and the selected modelling...

Towards automatic identification and quantification of features in thin sections - The application of an automated feature extraction model.

During this study a solid method for the acquisition of digital micromorphological thin section images under PPL and XPL conditions was developped. Furthermore, it was proved that usual but time consuming stages of image processing and image segmentation can be omitted. The software Feature Analyst® is able to conduct supervised and unsupervised learning on soil thin sections without image processing techniques including batch processing for supervised learning. Nevertheless, training sets have to be...

Geophysikalische und sedimentologische Untersuchungen der oberflächennahen Sedimente in der Polje von Alfarnate Geophysical

Diese Bachelorarbeit befasst sich mit der Analyse der Daten, die während der Geländekampagne in der Polje von Alfarnate (Provinz Málaga, Südspanien) erfasst wurden. Der Schwerpunkt lag dabei im Einsatz verschiedener Methoden, deren Ergebnisse Hinweise über Paläoumweltbedingungen liefern sollten. Die eingesetzten Methoden waren Geoelektrik, Georadar und Rammkernsondierung, welche unterschiedlich zufriedenstellende Resultate erzielten. Für das Untersuchungsgebiet war das Georadar ungeeignet aufgrund des...

Geochemische Untersuchung rezenter lakustriner Sedimente der Laguna de Medina, Südspanien

The Laguna de Medina is a semi-permanent salt lake in southern Spain. As part of a drilling campaign in March 2015, 47 samples of recent lacustrine sediments were taken of the lake by using a gravity corer. In addition the lake depth was measured at each sampled point. The taken samples were analyzed for their content of carbon, nitrogen and sulfur (CNS). Also the sediment was tested for it’s amount of total organic and inorganic carbon. It turns out that the recent lake sediment, specifially on the...

Mikropaläontologische Untersuchungen an den Sedimenten der Laguna Salada (Spanien)


Geochemische und geophysikalische Studie an Sedimenten der Laguna Grande, Südspanien

The Laguna Salada in southern Spain is a type of Playa Lake and constitutes an important climate archive for the southern part of the Iberian Peninsula. The focus of this study, as part of the CRC 806 – Our Way to Europe, project C3, is to reconstruct the climatic and environmental history of the Iberian Peninsula during the Late Glacial and Holocene on a high resolution. Therefor, several drills were carried out in and around the Lake and were merged in one 11.70 m long sediment sequence. In the context...

Geochemical and sedimentological study of lacustrine sediments of the Laguna Grande, Southern Spain

Due to its location in an endorheic basin the Laguna Grande in southern Spain represents a well conserved climate archive for paleoclimatologists to reconstruct the climate of the Holocene of the Iberian Peninsula, particularly in southern Spain. Necessary data were obtained by analyzing drilled lacustrine sediment sequences. Integrated in the C3 project of the Collaborative Research Center 806 “Our Way To Europe” the study focuses on investigations concerning climate anomalies and environmental conditions...
