Multi-proxy approach in palaeoenvironmental reconstrucitons using terrestrial sequences form southeastern Transylvania, Romania

Abstract

Tephrochronology in terrestrial sediments gained increased attention throughout the last years, since it can be used to enhance chronostratigraphy and to correlate various archives. In southeastern Europe, this approach is frequently used because the region lies in the dispersal zone of several regional and supra-regional tephras. By distinct characterisation of these layers, paleoenvironmental data can be put in a temporal frame. In this study, the polygenetic sediment sequence Bodoc in Transylvania, which contains several tephra layers as well as periglacial features, was sampled in 2015 and is currently analysed in a multi-proxyapproach to reconstruct climate and landscape evolution in the region during the late Pleistocene. Geochemical, granulometric, photospectrometric and magnetic investigations are conducted and will be supported by luminescence and radiocarbon dating, as well as by tephrochronological methods.
