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 publish the original data set used in Lehmkuhl et al. (2018). The reader is referred to the article regarding information on geoprocessing and standardization. Furthermore, we attribute the shapefiles of the used source maps by various authors, in order to facilitate further usage. Please quote the dataset and article when using this data.

Abstract: Geo- and palaeoecological studies focusing on the late Pleistocene require a detailed knowledge of the spatial distribution of aeolian sediments. In Germany existing maps are either on large scales, have a regional focus or show significant inaccuracies such as artificial boundaries within different geological units. To obtain a more detailed, seamless map of the distribution of aeolian sediments and their potential source areas, we combined and reanalysed available geo-data, using a Geographical Information System. The resultant maps (scale: approx.1:2,600,000) show the link between source areas and the late Quaternary aeolian deposits in Germany and can provide one context for further work on e.g. palaeogeographical studies. This work was compared with other already published datasets and the problems of sediment mapping at a small scale were discussed. Keywords: aeolian sediments; dust sources; spatial data; GIS; Central Europe This geodata corresponds to the following article and shall be quoted as such using the provided DOI: Lehmkuhl, F., Pötter, S., Pauligk A., Bösken, J.

Abstract: This raster data is part of a geospatial dataset that contains climate data from 30 ka to 13 ka in 1000 year steps, provided by Tallavaara et al. (2015). The variables are PET (Potential Evapotranspiration) and WAB (Water balance) in mm/year and MCM (Mean temperature of the coldest month) in C°. The source was supplied in a .xls file containing longitude/latitude coordinates with the related variable values. It was imported to a shapefile with QGIS' "Create a Layer from a Delimited Text File" tool. The vector point data has been converted to GeoTIFF with GDAL's gdal_rasterize tool. The dataset has a resolution of 216x141 cells, with a cell size of 0.375° width and 0.25° height. The original data by Tallavaara et al. (2015) was supplied in a .xls file containing longitude/latitude coordinates with the related variable values.

Abstract: To provide paleoenvironmental data for a GIS and geostatistic based Species Distribution Modelling (SDM) application, this comprehensive GIS data set was created. The data set consists of DEM based topography, and of paleoclimate layers, that were used as environmental predictor variables for SDM application.

Abstract: The Epigravettian site of Blazi cave represents so far the only undisturbed and securly dated Epigravettian site in Albania. The new data fill a research gap for the time of the Late Upper Palaeolithic in the Eastern Adriatic. During the GAP (German-Albanian Palaeolithic research project) campaign in 2015, a large sample of stone artefacts and animal bones was excavated. Their spatial distribution and good preservation indicate an in situ position of the archaeological layer. The tool spectrum contains a high ratio of backed bladelets and microgravette points, typical components of an Epigravettian assemblage. The faunal remains, mainly ibex, exhibit numerous cut and percussion marks, characterising Blazi cave as a specialised ibex hunting site.

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: Die vorliegende Arbeit beschreibt die Implementation des Metadatenmanagements für Geodaten aus den Projekten des SFB806. Es soll ein internetbasiertes Informationssystem geschaffen werden, das den Mitgliedern des Pro jektes ermöglicht, Daten an einer zentralen Stelle zu veröffentlichen und somit der projektinternen Forschungsgemeinschaft zugänglich zu machen. Das Informationssystem soll eine sichere und nachhaltige Archivierung der Forschungsergebnisse aus den Projekten des SFB806 gewährleisten und gleichermaßen als integrierte Datenbasis die Forschungsarb eit der Pro jektmitglieder des SFB806 unterstützen.
