Geodata of paleochannels on dry continental shelves in Europe during the last glacial maximum

Abstract

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 to obtain the same visual appearance as published. Furthere information on methodology is given in Lehmkuhl et al. (accepted).
