Investigations on rainfall variability during the late Quaternary based on geochemical analyses of lake sediments from tropical and subtropical southern AfricaKristen Iris
This thesis presents investigations on sediments from two African lakes which have been recording changes in their surrounding environmental and climate conditions since more than 200,000 years. Focus of this work is the time of the last Glacial and the Holocene (the last ~100,000 years before present [in the following 100 kyr BP]). One important precondition for this kind of research is a good understanding of the present ecosystems in and around the lakes and...

Late Pleistocene-Holocene sedimentary processes at the active margin of South-Central Chile : marine and lacustrine sediment records as archives of tectonics and climate variabilityStefer [Blumberg] Susanne
In my thesis, I studied marine and lacustrine sediment cores from different depositionalprovinces along the south-central Chilean margin with the overall objective to identifytheir records of paleoclimate and paleotectonics. First of all, I investigated sedimentarysequences that were recovered within the margin-parallel trench system (cp. Figure 1.2)and hence constitute long-term recorders [...] of the sediment transport between the continent and the abyssal zone of the lower plate.

HALO_GPS software user manual : (High Altitude and LOng range airborne GPS positioning software) ; Version of 2010Wang Qianxin, Xu Tianhe & Xu Guochang
HALO_GPS is a precise GPS kinematic positioning software. It was developed at GFZPotsdam for the German HALO project. The goal is to develop a software which is able to achieve cm-level accuracy for an aircraft trajectory for application in airborne gravimetry.
Against the background of EnMAP preparation analyses have been carried out on the status of research in various areas of hyperspectral remote sensing for the use of existing algorithms in the EnMAP application box. The aim was to compose the status of research in Germany and internationally. Therefore, in various fields of expertise applied and accordingly available algorithms and products based on hyperspectral data has been evaluated and documented. The intention has been to demonstrate...
