Paleocoastlines GIS dataset - 130 m below to 5 m above mean sea level m above
This GIS dataset contains modelled land mask of characteristic sea level high stand/ low stand events during a period from 140 ka until recent times in Europe, the Nearer East and northern parts of Africa. The sea level data was collected from data published in scholarly works (Lambeck2005, Fleming1998, Cuffey2000, Sikora2014) and GIS proceeded using QGIS and ArcMap.
Workflow: First of all the bounding box for GEBCO 2014 (30arc) raster data was set to 21.0_1.0_57.0_62.0 (CRC806 area) and interpolated using factor 0,1. Afterwards raster data was reclassified in order to get the specific elevation level that was mentioned in literature. The next steps were the vectorization of data and extraction of land mask followed by modification of attributes in adding sea level information to the dataset.
