Impacts of climate and humans on the vegetation in northwestern Turkey: palynological insights from Lake Iznik since the Last Glacial doi Spatial

The Marmara region in northwestern Turkey provides a unique opportunity for studying the vegetation history in response to climate changes and anthropogenic impacts because of its location between different climate and vegetation zones and its long settlement history. Geochemical and mineralogical investigations of the largest lake in the region, Lake Iznik, already registered climate-related changes of the lake level and the lake mixing. However, a palynological investigation encompassing the Late...

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...

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...

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...
