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....

Mesolithic sites in Franconia. Coordinates and chronological composition data base, 2020_10_18_B.Spies SFB806 doi Spatial

The data set contains information on Mesolithic sites in Franconia and adjacent regions. Site IDs (column A) are structured regionally. Sites with 1001-1304 are located in Lower Franconia and directly adjacent areas. 2001-2097 are based on the activities of one private collector surveying a microregion in Middle Franconia over a period of 40 years. 3001-3015 are taken from Robert Graf (2010) Das Mesolithikum im Landkreis Kronach. Unpublished Magister thesis, University of Munich. 4001-4032 are based on the...

Stable organic carbon and nitrogen isotope data for two loess-palaeosol sequences in the Carpathian Basin SFB806 doi Spatial

This proxy dataset corresponds to the article Pötter et al. (2020) and comprises geochemical data (stable organic carbon and nitrogen isotope ratios) of the loess-palaeosol sequences of Irig (Serbia) and Semlac (Romania) in the southern Carpathian Basin Reference Pötter, S., Schmitz, A., Lücke, A., Schulte, P., Obreht, I., Zech, M., Wissel, H., Zech, M., Marković, S.B. and Lehmkuhl F. (accepted). Middle to Late Pleistocene environments based on stable organic carbon and nitrogen isotopes of...

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...

Geodata of 'Loess distribution and related Quaternary sediments in the Carpathian Basin' SFB806 doi Spatial

This set of data depicts the distribution of loess and related Quaternary sediments in the Carpathian Basin. Using a Geographic Information System (GIS), we compiled a map showing the distribution of loess and related Quaternary sediments in the Carpathian Basin, with unprecedented detail. We vectorized and analyzed existing data (mainly from geological maps) and combined and transferred these into a common (loess) sediment classification system. This cross-border map shows the distribution of eolian...

Hunter-Gatherers of the High-Altitude Afromontane Forest - Holocene Occupation of Mount Dendi, Ethiopia Spatial Temporal

Presentation at SAfA 2018 Conference in Toronto: The Dendi Lake Rock Shelter is situated circa 80 km west of Addis Abeba on the West Central Ethiopian Plateau in the Ginchi woreda of the Oromiya regional state of Ethiopia. In October 2012 a team from the University of Cologne, CRC 806 directed by R. Vogelsang excavated a test-trench that revealed four archaeological horizons that could clearly be distinguished in typological manners as well as by radiocarbon dates. The talk will focus on the lithics,...

Palaeohydrology and its impact on groundwater in arid environments: Gebel Duwi and its vicinities, Eastern Desert, Egypt doi Spatial

From ancient times, access to water in arid and hyper-arid regions has been crucial for life. Increased knowledge about groundwater conditions is therefore extremely important for the future development of desert areas. Gebel Duwi, a limestone ridge, sited in the today hyper-arid Eastern Desert of Egypt, was chosen for testing current hypotheses concerning the interdependence of palaeohydrologic features and geologic settings for groundwater investigations. Two sub-basins are identified in affecting Gebel...

Endorheische Becken in SW-Spanien: eine GIS-Vorerkundung zu weiterführenden Paläoumwelt-Studien Spatial

To understand paleoenvironment and its evolution, paleoenvironmental reconstruction is indispensable. Various climate archives containing data of several thousands of years allow conclusions about environmental conditions in prehistoric times. On the Iberian Peninsula such significant data can be found in lacustrine depositions in endorheic salt lakes. The Collaborative Research Centre 806 (CRC 806) established by the universities of Cologne, Bonn and Aachen examines the history and migration of humanity...
