Recording of luminescence signals in the field

Recording of luminescence signals in the field

In October 2014, Stephanie Merkel and Nicole Klasen of the F2 project used a portable luminescence reader (SUERC POSL of the Scottish Universities and Environmental Research Centre, East Kilbride) in the loess profile of Romont, Belgium (in collaboration with Jörg Zens, D1 project). Our idea was to gather first information about the sediment stratigraphy and to find the most appropriate locations for sampling. The application of the SUERC POSL i...

On the trail of Late Pleistocene surfaces (Eastern Desert, Egypt)

Several concentrations of Late Pleistocene stone artefacts were documented during archaeological surveys in 2014 in the vicinity of Sodmein Cave. These open-air sites were preferentially registered on older surface remnants (terraces) – covered mainly with a dark desert pavement – south of the cave entrance. Two of these terraces were topographically documented using a DGPS. During the course of this, it became increasingly clear that these terra...

Into the Sahara Desert’s Deep Past. Expedition to the Remote Tibesti Mountains

It is hard to believe: We have sent a probe 500 million km to a comet to analyze rock samples, but no geologist has yet dug his spade into the crater of the highest mountain of the planet's major desert. In mid-February 2015, a team of project A2 will leave N'Djaména for a c. 1000 km off-road journey to the Tibesti mountains of northern Chad, a lonely volcanic region covering more than 100,000 km2. The logistically challenging venture will inclu...

Moraine formations and speleothem records in northeastern Morocco

In August 2014, the C2 members Dr. Gilles Rixhon and Melanie Bartz undertook a second field trip to Morocco with the aim of sampling further palaeoclimate archives, namely glacial formations and speleothems. Moraines can be used as palaeoclimate archive thanks to the recent development of the cosmogenic nuclide dating techniques. During the first week, we carried out a detailed mapping of glacial formations in the Middle and High Atlas regions a...

A view off from Mochena Borago: Investigation of Quaternary environmental archives in southwestern Ethiopian Highlands

Mochena Borago's depositional history has to be linked with regional environmental archives to figure out the local and regional climate and morphological impacts on rockshelter deposits evolution. During the last field campaign test drillings were performed within Hobitcha Caldera located southeast of Mount Damota. This caldera builds the source region of Bisare River, which flows into rift valley Abaya Lake. In the area of Hobitcha Caldera, the...

Science Day in the Neander Valley

Science Day in the Neander Valley

The Neanderthal Museum at Mettmann near Düsseldorf invited the members of the C-Cluster to the first "Science Day" on November 16th, 2014 and we happily accepted. Our scientists presented different aspects of their work to the public. Both, finished results from projects from the past few decades and current research were presented. The visitors could see and experience everything from simple stone artefacts to highly modern 3D-scans, ...

Stones, Pottery, Dust, and Couscous

Stones, Pottery, Dust, and Couscous

From 18th until 22nd of November 2014, two archaeologists of project C2 (Jörg Linstädter and Alessandro Potì, both University of Cologne) went to Rabat, the magnificent capital of Morocco. Main goals of this short journey were: scientific meetings with our co-partners of the INSAP (Institut National des Sciences de l'Archéologie et du Patrimoine), the collection of geological and sedimentological samples from the last excavation campaign of Ifri ...

The 7th Loess Seminar – Kukla Loessfest ‘14

The 7th Loess Seminar – Kukla Loessfest ‘14

The 7th loess seminar LOESSFEST held in memory of one of the greatest loess researchers, namely Georg J. Kukla, took place from 8–15 September in Poland. The international conference was placed in Wroclaw from 8–9 September, while the following six days were reserved for the fieldtrip to loess area in south Poland. Beside many important international members of the Quaternary terrestrial and loess research communities, two CRC members, Christian...

First DSDDP workshop in Ein Gedi and field trip around Israel in November 2014

In November 2014, the members of the B3 project went to Israel for the Dead Sea Deep Drilling Project (DSDDP) workshop and several short field trips around Israel. It was the first workshop after the ICDP drilling in the Dead Sea in 2010/2011. Researches of the DSDDP team were present and extensive discussions were carried out in the kibbutz Ein Gedi, which is one of the oldest oasis of Israel lying next to the Dead Sea. From B3 cluster, Thomas L...
