Abstract: R-SWMS is a numerical model for simulating solute transport and water flow in and between the soil and the plant systems. The acronym stands for Modeling “Root-Soil Water Movement and Solute transport”. Based on the flow and transport equations in the 3D soil matrix and within the 3D root xylem network, it simulates the uptake of solute and water by plant roots for a growing plant. Three-dimensional root growth is function of environmental conditions (soil strength, temperature) and plant parameters (gravitropism, sensitivity to strength, etc.). The code has been used in several projects and labs around the world. An updated list of publications dealing with R-SWMS can be found at https://www.zotero.org/groups/r-swms. The handbook includes theory, numerics, input files, output files, installation, and some example calculations.

Abstract: Im Verlauf dieser Arbeit werden auf eine geographische und archäologische Einordnung folgend, die zur Analyse angewandten Methoden und die daraus resultierenden Erkenntnisse dargestellt und diskutiert. Um die Ergebnisse, die unter anderem paläoklimatische Aspekte bereithalten chronologisch einzuordnen und einen Kontext mit der Paläoumwelt herzustellen werden die heutigen Klimabedingungen und mögliche Ausprägungen der Paläoumwelt des Untersuchungsgebietes vorgestellt (Kapitel 4) und mit verschiedenen Paläoumweltarchiven des südosteuropäischen Raumes verglichen. Dies bezieht sich besonders auf den Zeitraum um 18 ka BP, was der Datierung der Fundschicht 3A entspricht (vgl. Kapitel 3.2) und das LGM. Die Ergebnisse der mikromorphologischen Analyse sollen die generellen Charakteristika des Westprofiles des Grabungsschnittes V (vgl. Kapitel 3.2) in der Blazi Cave herausstellen. Dies beinhaltet die Sedimentzusammensetzung, Dichte, Lagerung sowie die Verteilung der Komponenten und des enthaltenen archäologischen Materials, in den aus den Proben präparierten Dünnschliffen (vgl. Kapitel 7). Dies impliziert auch die Darstellung der Verhältnisse und Grenzen der Schichten, insbesondere der Schichten 2 und 3. Zudem soll die Trennung mehrerer potenzieller Besiedlungsphasen der Schichten 3A und 3B erfolgen. Ein besonderes Augenmerk gilt im Zuge der regionalen Forschungsgeschichte (vgl. Kapitel 1.1) der Detektion von Diskordanzen, Erosionsereignisse, die sich unter anderem in anthropogen oder biogen verlagerten Schichten zeigen können, für die allerdings auch fluviale oder kryoturbate Prozesse (vgl. Kapitel 5.3.4) in Betracht gezogen werden.

Abstract: By analysing satellite images of the area around Sodmein Cave numerous well-preserved surface remnants (terraces) could be documented. Surveys on these old terraces, showing mainly a dark desert pavement, yielded preferentially Pleistocene artefact concentrations. Hence, it became clear that these terraces represent parts of the former Pleistocene surface of the area. During surveying activities on such terraces a new archaeological site – preliminary named as “Sodmein Playa” 14/01 – was discovered around 3 km south-west of Sodmein Cave. On the surface a concentration of Middle Stone Age (MSA) artefacts, which seem to weather out of the sediments was observed. It was immediately clear that it did not occur in association with the gravel terraces but indicate a different geomorphological context. The artefacts did not exhibit the typical desert varnish of the terrace surfaces and they occurred at the surface of a sandy plain, seemingly lacustrine sediments (playa).

Abstract: The materials to the teaching unit „‚Migration in the past and today – Where are the differences in the migrations?’ with the focus on handling the question ‚Why did modern humans came to Europe?’” are developed in the frame of the dissertation „Argumentation as a method to solve problems: A class study to the oral argumentation of pupils in cooperative settings in geography lessons” (Sabrina Dittrich). This dissertation was written in the Collaborative Research Center 806 – ‚Our Way to Europe’. The teaching unit can be classified into the 10th grade of grammar schools and into the 11th grade of comprehensive schools accordingly (German school system). For further questions: sabrina-dittrich(at)gmx.de Zusammenfassung: Die Unterrichtsmaterialien zur Unterrichtseinheit „‚Migration früher und heute – Wo liegen die Unterschiede in den Migrationen‘ mit dem Fokus auf der Bearbeitung der Frage ‚Warum kam der moderne Mensch nach Europa?‘“ sind im Rahmen der Dissertation „Argumentieren als Methode zur Problemlösung: Eine Unterrichtsstudie zur mündlichen Argumentation von Schülerinnen und Schülern in kooperativen Settings im Geographieunterricht“ (Sabrina Dittrich) entwickelt worden. Diese Dissertation ist im Sonderforschungsbereich 806 ‚Our Way to Europe‘ verfasst worden. Die Unterrichtseinheit ist in die Jahrgansstufe 10 an Gymnasien bzw. 11 an Gesamtschulen einzuordnen.

Abstract: Far too often does country- or language-specific nomenclature impede the estimation of the past lithic raw material economy. Sadly, the early Upper Palaeolithic raw material record of the open-air localities of the Banat in Southwest Romania is no exception. It is dominated by a rock in literature referred to as Silexul de tip bănăţean. Silexul means “[…] a wide range of hard rocks with sharp edges, from which Palaeolithic tools are forged (Mogoşanu and Cârciumaru 1978, 18) and cannot simply be translated to flint. Moreover, the identity of the other varieties is also far from straightforward. It is hence proposed to consider only the geochemical make-up of the lithic records by means of X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy. As the entire geochemical composition of a landscape is seldom mapped, the results were compared to metal ore deposits, which have an excellent documentation due to their economic value. Five groups relating to distinct metal ore deposits were recognized. These deposits are used as guides to delineate the areas, in which the outcrops should occur. Further research will combine the results of this provenance study with data on lithic technology and cortex.

Abstract: This GIS dataset contains 23 different modelled land masks of characteristic sea level high stand/ low stand for events and intervals during a period from 140 ka until today in Europe, the Nearer East and northern parts of Africa. The sea level data was collected from data published in scholarly works and GIS proceeded using GIS software QGIS and ArcMap also as GEBCO DEM.

Abstract: Scale, spatial and temporal, is one of the most important issues to deal with, when reconstructing former environments and landscapes in context of geoarchaeology. We present remote sensing investigations of different scales in order to answer crucial questions about late Pleistocene terrain environment as one important aspect for the migration of anatomically modern humans in Northeast Africa.
