Dataset of Upper Palaeolithic site probability in Lower Austria SFB806 doi Spatial Temporal

This dataset includes all geodata of the Upper Palaeolithic predictive modelling in lower Austria by Boemke et al. (in review). This study analyses the geospatial behaviour of 23 Upper Palaeolithic sites in Lower Austria. A new approach is applied, combining the advantages of a classical deductive method with the capabilities of machine learning, implemented via the MaxEnt software. The result is a predictive model for an area of 7850 km², exploring the potential for the presence of Upper Palaeolithic...

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...

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. Main types of vegetation (ecosystems) for the maximum cooling of the last glaciation., in: In: Frenzel, B., Pecsi, B. Velichko, A.A. (Eds.): Atlas of Palaeoclimates and...

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....

Human Adaptations to the Last Glacial Maximum: The Solutrean and its Neighbors Temporal

The book assembles new insights into humanity’s social, cultural and economic developments during the Last Glacial Maximum in Western Europe and adjacent regions. It gathers original, up-to-date research results on the Solutrean techno-complex, reflecting four major fields of research: data from current excavations; analysis of lithic assemblages; new results from studies on climatic conditions and human-environmental interactions; and insights into artistic expressions. New methodological and analytical...

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...
