CRC 806 at DFG’s “Research in Germany” Booth / AGU Fall Meeting 2016, San Francisco

With about 25,000 participants, the annual convention of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) in San Francisco is the world’s largest geoscientific conference. Once again, the DFG’s “Research in Germany” initiative was present at the accompanying exhibition with a prominent and generously sized booth, only second to NASA and Google, from 11–15/12/2016. It was shared by three German clusters of excellence – CliSAP, MARUM and The Future Ocean; two...

CliMathNet and PEN

CliMathNet and PEN

The network CliMathNet is a collaboration of climate scientists, mathematicians and statisticians aiming to answer related questions to climate modeling, e.g. dealing with uncertainties in predictions and observations. Closely connected to CliMathNet is PEN (Past Earth Network), whose goal is to improve future climate predictions by studying past climate. Therefore, PEN looks at the uncertainty quantification of models and observations, data-mode...

Human-landscape interactions in Halkidiki (NC Greece) over the last 3.5 millennia

The sediment core from Tristinika coastal marsh in the northern part of Central Greece is the first complete record of vegetation transformation over the last 3.5 millennia. The palynological investigation of the above mentioned core reveals a very strong correlation between vegetation development and human settlement in Halkidiki. Considering the climate variability of this period and the correlation of the pollen data to the extended archaeolog...

Being a Hunter-Gatherer in Namibia – Blurring the Lines

Over the course of his PhD fieldwork, E3 project member Charlie Goodwin has been investigating two communities in the North-Central area of Namibia, both areas of settlement for !Xun and =Akhwe Hai||om people. Hunter-gatherers in Namibia are experiencing a period of rapid transition, many engaged in wagework and farming as well as practising traditionally hunter-gatherer forms of subsistence. The central objective of fieldwork, conducted over the...

La Janda – Coring in September 2016

In September 2016, during a joint drilling campaign of geoscientists from Aachen and Cologne (C-Cluster) and the Spanish Geological Survey (IGME), 170 m of sediment cores have been recovered from the La Janda basin (SW Spain). A commercial drilling team, supervised by Rosa Mediavilla (IGME), could manage to recover the longest sequence (30 m) from this archive ever. This long record has been drilled in a central position at the southern rim of th...

Excavation in Andalucia: Deep inside the cave

Excavation in Andalucia: Deep inside the cave

In C-Cluster, we cannot get enough of caves. This year, our excavation campaign in Ardales Cave (Málaga, Andalucia) was continued. For five weeks, we entered the dark and wet cave that lies on a hill next to the picturesque little village of Ardales with its cute little white houses to search for the smallest traces Palaeolithic men and women could have left there while painting and engraving horses and deers 16,000 to 20,000 years ago. Last year...

Quels passés pour l’Afrique? SAfA meeting 2016

Since the 1970s, the Society of Africanist Archaeologists (SAfA) holds a biennial conference dedicated to African archaeology and related research topics. The meetings alternate between Europe and North America and represent, together with the meetings of the Pan-African Archaeological Association (PAA) in Africa, the best opportunity for the Africanist archaeological community to meet and discuss the latest research developments. In the summer o...
