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...

GIS-Based Automated Landform Classification for Analysis of Archaeological Sites

This poster presents the first results of an attempt to classify archaeological sites by landform analysis of the landscape. To make further use of modelled DEM-derived site catchments, it is possible to classify the relief to be able to compare the sites environment quantitatively. To achieve that goal, we implemented the TPI-based landform classification approach from Weiss (2001) in ArcGIS and applied it to a study area in Andalusia (Spain) to compare the results for various Solutrean sites. The applied...

Palaeoclimatological research of the Early Quaternary from the Laguna de Medina, Cádiz, Spain

Our work (C3 project) is a contribution to the CRC 806 “Our way to Europe”, dealing with the climatic and environmental changes in the Upper Pleistocene – Middle Holocene of the Iberian Peninsula (IP) and its connection to human migration. The connection between archeological and geological archives is one of the aims of this research. The question of the Late Quaternary climate in the Western Mediterranean and its influence on human migration is still not, or more over contradictory answered. This is...

The Holocene archaeological sequence and site formation processes at Ifri Oudadane, NE Morocco

The coastal site of Ifri Oudadane is one of the most important sites in the Mediterranean Maghreb. Recent excavations have provided a stratigraphy featuring the transition from Epipalaeolithic hunter-gatherers to Neolithic food producers. This transitional process could be defined by various features. The sedimentological field description revealed a change from homogenous sediment to more structured deposits, and similar to the so-called “fumiers” that are characteristic of animal husbandry in caves and...
