Palynological and stratigraphic record from Löddigsee in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany, supplement to: Jahns, Susanne (2006): Palynological investigations into the Late Pleistocene and Holocene history of vegetation and settlement at the Löddigsee, Mecklenburg, Germany. Vegetation History and Archaeobotany, 16, 157-169Susanne Jahns
A Late Pleistocene and Holocene sediment core from the nowadays terrestrialised portion of the Löddigsee in Southern Mecklenburg, Germany was palynologically investigated. The lake is situated in the rarely investigated Young moraine area at the transition from the Weichselian to the Saalian glaciation. The high-resolution pollen diagram contributes to the establishment of the north-eastern German Late Pleistocene pollen stratigraphy. The vegetation distribution pattern after the end of the Weichselian is in good agreement with other...
Rock magnetism and X-ray flourescence spectrometry analyses on sediment cores of the Lake Huguang Maar, Southeast China, supplement to: Yancheva, Gergana; Nowaczyk, Norbert R; Mingram, Jens; Dulski, Peter; Schettler, Georg; Negendank, Jörg F W; Liu, Jiaqi; Sigman, Daniel M; Peterson, Larry S; Haug, Gerald H (2007): Influence of the intertropical convergence zone on the East Asian monsoon. Nature, 445, 74-77Gergana Yancheva, Norbert R Nowaczyk, Jens Mingram, Peter Dulski, Georg Schettler, Jörg F W Negendank, Jiaqi Liu, Daniel M Sigman, Larry S Peterson & Gerald H Haug
The Asian/Australian monsoon is an important component of the Earth's climate system that influences the societal and economic activity of roughly half the world's population. The past strength of the rain-bearing East Asian summer monsoon can be reconstructed with archives such as cave deposits, but the winter monsoon has no such signature in the hydrological cycle and has thus proved difficult to reconstruct. Here we present high-resolution records of the magnetic properties and the titanium...
Daily mean surface meteorology and river discharge in Central Sulawesi for the period 2002-2005, supplement to: Leemhuis, Constanze (2006): The Impact of El Niño Southern Oscillation Events on Water Resource Availability in Central Sulawesi, Indonesia: A hydrological modelling approach. PhD Thesis, Georg-August-Universität zu Göttingen, Germany, 172 ppConstanze Leemhuis
The El Niño/ Southern Oscillation (ENSO) phenomenon is the strongest known natural interannual climate fluctuation. The most recent two extreme ENSO events of 1982/83 and 1997/98 severley hit the socio-economy of main parts of Indonesia. As the climate variability is not homogeneous over the whole Archipelago of Indonesia, ENSO events cause negative precipitation anomalies of diverse magnitude and uration in different regions. Understanding the hydrology of humid tropical catchments is an essential prerequisite to investigate...
Recent ostracods in surface sediment samples from Admiralty Bay, King George Island, West Antarctica, supplement to: Majewski, Wojciech; Olempska, Ewa (2005): Recent ostracods from Admirality Bay, King George Island, West Antarctica. Polish Polar Research, 26(1), 13-36Wojciech Majewski & Ewa Olempska
Ostracods from Admiralty Bay on King George Island (South Shetland Islands) represent 29 podocopid species, belonging to 19 genera, one cladocopid and six myodocopid species. They were recovered from Recent marine and/or glacio-marine sediment samples from water depths of up to 520 m. These ostracods constitute a variable assemblage, which is overall typical for the Antarctic environment. Shallow-water assemblages tend to be more variable in terms of frequencies and species richness than deep-water assemblages. The...
Clay mineral and stratigraphic record of two sediment cores from the Aegean Sea, supplement to: Ehrmann, Werner; Schmiedl, Gerhard; Hamann, Yvonne; Kuhnt, Tanja; Hemleben, Christoph; Siebel, Wolfgang (2007): Clay minerals in late glacial and Holocene sediments of the northern and southern Aegean Sea. Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology, 249(1-2), 36-57Werner Ehrmann, Gerhard Schmiedl, Yvonne Hamann, Tanja Kuhnt, Christoph Hemleben & Wolfgang Siebel
Different source areas, oceanography and climate regimes influenced the clay mineral assemblages and grain size distribution of two sediment cores from the North and South Aegean Sea during the last glacial and the Holocene. In the North Aegean Sea, clay mineral composition is mainly controlled by sea level evolution, melting of southeastern European glaciers, and establishment of the connection between the Black Sea and Aegean Sea. The long-term development of clay mineral assemblages in the...
50 year means of oxygen isotope data from ice core NGRIP, supplement to: North Greenland Ice Core Project Members (2004): High-resolution record of Northern Hemisphere climate extending into the last interglacial period. Nature, 431, 147-151
Two deep ice cores from central Greenland, drilled in the 1990s, have played a key role in climate reconstructions of the Northern Hemisphere, but the oldest sections of the cores were disturbed in chronology owing to ice folding near the bedrock. Here we present an undisturbed climate record from a North Greenland ice core, which extends back to 123,000 years before the present, within the last interglacial period. The oxygen isotopes in the ice imply...
Miocene palaeoclimate reconstrutions from 11 sites in the Ukraine, supplement to: Syabryaj, Svetlana; Molchanoff, Serge; Utescher, Torsten; Bruch, Angela A (2007): Vegetation and palaeoclimate in the Miocene of Ukraine. Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology, 253(1-2), 169-184Svetlana Syabryaj, Serge Molchanoff, Torsten Utescher & Angela A Bruch
Miocene deposits (marine and terrestrial) distributed throughout the whole territory of Ukraine contain numerous palaeontological remains including plant macro- and microfossils. The Miocene strata of Ukraine belong to the Central and the Eastern Paratethys and deposits from these regions have been studied palynologically. For the reconstruction of the vegetation of lowland and mountain areas in Ukraine palynological data have been complemented with data obtained from carpological and foliar studies. To obtain quantitative palaeoclimate data to...
Dust concentration in the NGRIP ice core, supplement to: Ruth, Urs; Bigler, Matthias; Röthlisberger, Regine; Siggaard-Andersen, Marie-Louise; Kipfstuhl, Sepp; Goto-Azuma, Kumiko; Hansson, Margareta E; Johnsen, Sigfus J; Lu, Huayu; Steffensen, Jørgen Peder (2007): Ice core evidence for a very tight link between North Atlantic and east Asian glacial climate. Geophysical Research Letters, 34, L03706Urs Ruth
Corresponding millennial-scale climate changes have been reported from the North Atlantic region and from east Asia for the last glacial period on independent timescales only. To assess their degree of synchrony we suggest interpreting Greenland ice core dust parameters as proxies for the east Asian monsoon systems. This allows comparing North Atlantic and east Asian climate on the same timescale in high resolution ice core data without relative dating uncertainties. We find that during Dansgaard-Oeschger...
Geochemistry, clay mineralogy and grain size distribution in various sediment cores drilled during ODP Leg 119 on the Antarctic continental shelf off Prydz Bay, supplement to: Hambrey, Mike J; Ehrmann, Werner; Larsen, Birger (1991): Cenozoic glacial record of the Prydz Bay continental shelf, East Antarctica. In: Barron, J; Larsen, B; et al. (eds.), Proceedings of the Ocean Drilling Program, Scientific Results, College Station, TX (Ocean Drilling Program), 119, 77-132Mike J Hambrey, Werner Ehrmann & Birger Larsen
Drilling was undertaken at five sites (739-743) on ODP Leg 119 on a transect across the continental shelf of Prydz Bay, East Antarctica, to elucidate the long-term glacial history of the area and to examine the importance of the area with respect to the development of the East Antarctic ice sheet as a whole. In addition to providing a record of glaciation spanning 36 m.y. or more, Leg 119 has provided information concerning the development...
Miocene microflora and palaeoclimate reconstructions from three sites in Bulgaria, supplement to: Ivanov, Dimiter A; Ashraf, Abdul Rahman; Mosbrugger, Volker; Palamarev, E (2002): Palynological evidence for Miocene climate change in the Forecarpathien Basin (Central Paratethys, NW Bulgaria). Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology, 178(1-2), 19-37Dimiter A Ivanov, Abdul Rahman Ashraf, Volker Mosbrugger & E Palamarev
In this study we reconstruct quantitatively the Middle to Upper Miocene climate evolution in the southern Forecarpathian Basin (Central Paratethys area, Northwest Bulgaria) by applying the coexistence approach to 101 well-dated palynofloras isolated from three cores. The climatic evolution is compared with changes in vegetation and palaeogeography. The Middle Miocene was a period of a subtropical/warm–temperate humid climate with mean annual temperature (MAT) between 16 and 18°C and mean annual precipitation (MAP) between 1100 and...
Gravity mapping in the southern Weddell Sea region, Antarctica (Scale 1:2 000 000), supplement to: Aleshkova, Nadezhda D; Golynsky, Alexander V; Kurinin, Rem G; Mandrikov, V S (2000): Gravity mapping in the southern Weddell Sea region. (Explanatory note for free-air and Bounger anomalie maps). Polarforschung, 67(3), 163-177Nadezhda D Aleshkova, Alexander V Golynsky, Rem G Kurinin & V S Mandrikov
New maps of free-air and the Bouguer gravity anomalies on the Weddell Sea sector (70-81° S, 6-75° W) of Antarctica are presented. These maps are based on the first computer compilation of available gravity data collected by ''Sevmorgeologia'' in 1976-89 in the southern Weddell Sea and adjacent coasts of western Dronning Maud Land (WDML) and Coats Land. The accomplished gravity studies comprise airborne observations with a line spacing of about 20 km and conventional measurements...
Current observations near the continental slope off Portugal, supplement to: Meincke, Jens; Siedler, Gerold; Zenk, Walter (1975): Some current near the continental slope off Portugal. Meteor Forschungsergebnisse, Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, Reihe A Allgemeines, Physik und Chemie des Meeres, Gebrüder Bornträger, Berlin, Stuttgart, A16, 15-22Jens Meincke, Gerold Siedler & Walter Zenk
Some current meter data obtained from a mooring at 2450 m water depth near the continental slope off Portugal are presented. The mean currents at five levels with observations are northward. Mean speeds in the core of the Mediterranean Water exceed speeds at shallower levels by 2 to 3 cm/sec, indicating advection connected to this specific water mass. The current variability is dominated by semi-diurnal tidal components. Normal mode analysis reveals a predominant mode of...
Grain size distribution in surface sediments samples of the continental shelf and slope of southeast Greenland, supplement to: Sommerhoff, G (1973): Formenschatz und morphologische Gliederung des südostgrönländischen Schelfgebietes und Kontinentalabhanges. Meteor Forschungsergebnisse, Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, Reihe C Geologie und Geophysik, Gebrüder Bornträger, Berlin, Stuttgart, C15, 1-54G Sommerhoff
During "Meteor" Cruise 6/1966 in the northwest Atlantic a systematic survey of the bottom topography of the southeast Greenland continental margin was undertaken. Eighty-seven profiles transverse to the shelf edge at distances of 3-4 nautical miles and two longitudinal profiles parallel to the coast were carried out with the ELAC Narrow Beam Echo-Sounder giving a reliable record of even steep slopes. On the basis of the echo soundings the topography and morphology of the continental...
The Appendicularia and Chaetognatha from the Great Meteor Bank, Northeast Atlantic, supplement to: Bückmann, A; Kapp, H (1973): Untersuchungen am Zooplankton von der Atlantischen Kuppenfahrt der \"Meteor\", März bis Juli 1967. Meteor Forschungsergebnisse, Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, Reihe D Biologie, Gebrüder Bornträger, Berlin, Stuttgart, D13, 11-36A Bückmann & H Kapp
At a longtime station near the "Grosse Meteor Bank" in the North Atlantic 41 subsequent hauls were made in April 1967 with the Helgoland larva net with changing bucket device. In addition 9 hauls were made during July 1967. The catches from the depth ranges of 900-700 m, 700-500 m, 500-300 m, 300-200 m, 200-100 m, and 100-0 m were collected in separate buckets during each catch series. Contamination, though possible on principle, does not...
