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 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 '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...
