Meeting meteorologists and (paleo)climate scientists in Berlin at the DACH

In 2016, the most important conference on meteorology in Germany, Switzerland and Austria, called ‘DACH’, took place at the Freie Universität Berlin. Erik J. Schaffernicht was offered the chance to give a talk in the session on climate variability. He presented his ongoing PhD research on the climate variability during the Last Glacial Maximum. In his talk, he focusses on the NAO (North Atlantic Oscillation) during the past and compared it to pre...

Simulation of a dust event over Europe during the Last Glacial Maximum

One of the aims of Project E6 is to reconstruct the climate conditions related to mineral dust over Europe in the LGM. We use the regional WRF (Weather Research and Forecasting) model to simulate various representative episodes of the LGM, identified using the circulation weather type analysis. Here, the evolution of an individual dust event is shown. Model initial and boundary conditions have been carefully specified. For instance, vegetation co...

24th International Diatom Symposium (IDS) in Québec City (Canada)

Around 190 scientists with interest in diatom research from all over the world came together to present and discuss results related to diatoms in talks, posters and workshops during the 24th IDS held in beautiful Québec City. Hannah Vossel from the Project B3 was presenting final results of her PhD research about the diatom flora of Lake Kinneret (Israel) in an oral presentation and gave new insights for Holocene climate change and human impact i...

ShinyDRAC and the R package ‘TLdating’ are online

After two years of work, a stable version of the new R package ‘TLdating’ in now available on CRAN (https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/TLdating/index.html) and github. The ‘TLdating’ package is a new R package specifically dedicated to TL dating. It is designed to be fully compatible with the existing ‘Luminescence’ package, and it is user-friendly. It includes functions for TL data pretreatment and equivalent dose (De) estimation using the...

UK Luminescence and ESR Meeting 2016

UK Luminescence and ESR Meeting 2016

This year, the UK Luminescence and ESR Meeting took place in Liverpool at the beginning of July. As always, the Cologne Luminescence Lab was well represented. Melanie Bartz and Janina Bösken, two PhD candidates from the CRC 806, gave oral presentations about their PhD research which is OSL and ESR dating of quaternary fluvial terraces along the lower Moulouya River (NE Morocco, C2) and OSL dating of a loess-palaeosol sequence from Stalać (Serbia,...

GSGS Summer School on Dates and Rates of Change in the Quaternary

During the penultimate week of August, the GSGS (the Graduate School of Geoscience) organized a Summer School on ‘Dates and Rates of Change in the Quaternary’ in Blankenheim near Cologne. The courses were given by speakers not only from Cologne University including members of the CRC 806 such as Tibor Dunai, Janna Just, Georgina King and Stephanie Kusch, but also by speakers from the UK such as Rachel Smedley from Aberystwyth University, Fin Stua...

18th international conference on Solid State Dosimetry (SSD18) in Munich

In the beginning of July PhD candidate Franz Hartung (F2 project) visited the 18th international conference on Solid State Dosimetry (SSD18; see www.ssd18.org) in Munich. At this conference international researches presented their work on the impact of ionising radiation on the luminescence properties of materials, on the material properties itself and the application of these materials in personal dosimetry, dating, dose reconstruction and analy...

Measurements in the blocks of SUERC in East Kilbride (Scotland)

In June 2016 Nicole Klasen, Anja Zander and Franz Hartung (F2 project) visited David Sanderson at the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre (SUERC) in East Kilbride, Scotland, UK. They took the new portable NaI:Tl spectrometer and the BeOmax dosimetry system along for spectrometric and dose rate measurements in two special designed calibration blocks filled with granite and basalt, respectively. Firstly, they placed the new NaI:Tl d...
