CRC 806 at AGU Fall Meeting 2015

During the 48th AGU (American Geophysical Union) Fall Meeting, the major Earth and space science meeting in the world held in San Francisco 14–18 December 2015 with nearly 24,000 participants, we presented our CRC 806 at the DFG stand during one day with flyers, a presentation and a clip on the Tibesti fieldwork. Much attractive were our gimmicks: compasses and key chains with CRC 806 “Our Way to Europe” engravings. We had interesting discussions...

Paleovolcanology and late Pleistocene paleoenvironmental changes at Ciomadul, the youngest volcano of the Carpatho-Pannonian Region

On December 9th 2015, a conference regarding paleovolcanology and late Pleistocene paleoenvironmental changes at Ciomadul (Carpatho-Pannonian Region) was held in Budapest, organized and hosted by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. The conference commenced with a series of talks, concerning the latest results and interpretations from a geological and volcanological point of view, chronology issues and dating techniques. At the second part of the c...

Soil, Soil, Soil: it’s all about Soil – being on the German Soil Society Conference during the International Year of Soils 2015

In September 2015, the conference of the German Soil Society took place in Munich. Soil, soil, soil: it’s all about soil. The days before and after the conference, several field trips were offered. I participated in a one-day field trip on paleosols and their dating techniques in the surroundings of Munich. During the conference, one could dive into topics on physical and hydrological soil processes, gas fluxes in soils, digital soil mapping, ima...

Geography 101 or what some people call dirt, we call our precious!

In March 2015, we went on a field campaign in the Kraichgau (Germany) to explore new loess-paleosol-sequences. With us (Bernhard Buhs, Eileen Eckmeier, Thomas Hauck, Arne Kappenberg, Lydia Krauss, Philipp Schulte, Joerg Zens) was a group of students eager to learn about the stuff we do and why we do it. Right after arriving, we started with an excursion on the geographical and geological background and the history of social-economic development b...

The paradox of the Tibesti crater palaeolakes (Sahara, Northwest Chad)

Recent field work in the Tibesti Mountains opens a new chapter in the reconstruction of the last climatic cycles in the central Sahara and their lacustrine environments. For the first time, complete lacustrine sections were sampled in the 900 m deep crater of Trou au Natron at Pic Toussidé (3,315 m a.s.l.), and in 800 m deep Era Kohor, the major sub-caldera of Emi Koussi, the Sahara’s 3,445 m high peak. The probed diatomites are located 360 and 1...

A week in stormy Aberystwyth discussing luminescence

This November, PhD student Janina Bösken travelled to the University of Aberystwyth in faraway Wales to attend a workshop about everything there is to know about luminescence dating. The main focus was set on discussions among colleagues from all over the world to enhance the scientific exchange. The basics Principals and key choice that need to be made prior to dating a sample were reviewed. Sampling strategies and other site-specific considerat...
