Potential raw material sources for the production of lithic artefacts in western Central Europe – GIS-data for the Rhineland, Westphalia, and the Benelux countries SFB806 doi Spatial Temporal

The GIS dataset contains 19 recent geological formation/ deposit shape files that keep lithic raw material used during the Palaeolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic periods. The geological data was gained from published digital maps (Carte géologique du Grand-Duché de Luxembourg 1998, GÜK200 2007, NRW: IS GK 100 DS 2009, Surface lithology (INSPIRE) 2016) whereas the data for 3 datasets on single outcrops, extraction sites and mining sites was collected during the D4 project phase (CRC 806). Further, out of the...

Maps of interpolated paleotemperatures in Western Europe from MIS 14 to MIS 11 doi Spatial PaleoMaps

To support the ecological model of the study Rodríguez et al. (2020, in review), five BIOCLIM variables (BIO1, BIO6, BIO10, BIO11) were computed from the Oscillayers dataset, for 11 subdivisions of the Marine Isotope Stages MIS 14 to MIS 11, as defined in (Rodríguez et al 2020, in review). Oscillayers is a global‐scale and region‐specific BIOCLIM paleoclimatic datasets with high temporal resolution spanning the Plio‐Pleistocene, facilitating the study of climatic oscillations during the last 5.4 million...

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...

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.

PaleoMaps: GIS based Palaeoenvironmental data collection for the Last Interglacial (125ka) of Egypt SFB806 doi Spatial PaleoMaps

The growing number of paleoenvironmental data, GIS-based analyses and modelling allows us to produce PaleoMaps for a given area. However, the „translation“ of paleoenvironmental information in maps is even more complex, than producing maps as an illustration of the present. The CRC 806 “Our Way to Europe” provides the background to study the culture-environment interaction and human mobility in the Late Quaternary. Northeastern Africa during the Last Interglacial is thereby an important region and timespan....

Megabiome changes over the last 120kyr (HadCM3) SFB806 doi Spatial PaleoMaps

This geospatial dataset contains climate data from 120 ka to 0 ka in 1000 to 4000 year steps as raster data. The variable shows biomes representing nine different climate conditions modeled with the HadCM3 - general circulation model. The source data from Hoogakker et al. (2016) was imported from the original published NetCDF file and translated to multiple GEOTIFFs with GDAL. The raster data has been converted to single GeoTIFFs with GDAL’s gdal translate and gdalwarp tool. The dataset has a resolution of...

Climate Data 30-13 ka GIS Dataset SFB806 doi Spatial PaleoMaps

This raster data is part of a geospatial dataset that contains climate data from 30 ka to 13 ka in 1000 year steps, provided by Tallavaara et al. (2015). The variables are PET (Potential Evapotranspiration) and WAB (Water balance) in mm/year and MCM (Mean temperature of the coldest month) in C°. The source was supplied in a .xls file containing longitude/latitude coordinates with the related variable values. It was imported to a shapefile with QGIS' "Create a Layer from a Delimited Text...

Paleocoastlines GIS dataset SFB806 doi Spatial PaleoMaps

This GIS dataset contains 23 different computed land masks of characteristic sea level high stand/ low stand with respect to the relative sea level (RSL) for events and intervals during a period from 200 ka BP until today in Europe, the Nearer East and northern parts of Africa. The sea level data was collected from modeled data published in scholarly works and derived from General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans (2014) using the software QGIS and esri ArcMap.

LGM paleoenvironment of Europe - Map SFB806 doi Spatial PaleoMaps

The here documented GIS map and dataset contains a collection of Last Glacial Maximum (LGM, ~21k yBP) paleoenvironmental data. It is the first result of a project that aims to acquire, produce and publish GIS datasets from non-GIS based sources such as analogous maps, textual informations or figures of scientific publications for prehistoric time slices. In combination with modelling results and already available GIS-datasets related to the mentioned time frame, it should enable other researchers and...

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.
