Source data used in "Loess distribution and related Quaternary sediments in the Carpathian Basin" by Lehmkuhl et al. 2018

Abstract

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 sediments in the Carpathian Basin at a scale of 1:1,500,000.

Here, we distribute the original data used to compile the map published in Lehmkuhl et al. (2018). We attribute the shapefiles of the used source maps by various authors, in order to facilitate further usage. This data does not depict the complete maps, but focusses on the Quaternary deposits. Please quote the dataset, article and source reference when using this data. In all shapefiles, the column of "Klassi" depicts the classification used in Lehmkuhl et al. 2018. The map used in Lehmkuhl et al. (2018) is accessible under the DOI: 10.5880/SFB806.43.
