Marine sediments preserved in a doline at 10 m above the present day sea level can help understand Plio-Pleistocene changes in the Black Sea.
Article
The Carpathian island-type glaciokarst has a great potential of preserving signals of past environments, archived in cave deposits like speleothems and clastic infills. We present here the geomorphology and structural control of several relict alpine caves and the surrounding glaciated marble karst in the Făgăraș Mountains. Four truncated and parti...

Future patterns of European ecosystem services provision are likely to vary significantly as a result of climatic and socio-economic change and the implementation of adaptation strategies. However, there is little research in mapping future ecosystem services and no integrated assessment approach to map the combined impacts of these drivers. Map ch...

Histria (Istros) is one of the earliest Milesian colonies founded on the Black Sea coast during the archaic period (7th c. BC). Its remains are located within what is today the Razelm–Sinoe lagoon system which forms the southern part of the Danube Delta. During its 13 centuries of existence, Histria experienced an environment favourable for a prosp...

Histria (Istros) is a Milesian colony founded on the Black Sea coast during the 7th c.BC. Nowadays, the remains of the ancient city are located 8 km inland form the Black Sea coast, on the continental edge of the Razelm-Sinoe lagoon system which forms the southern part of the Danube Delta. Significant environmental changes occurred during and after...

Future climate simulations show that global atmospheric temperature will rise by the end of the 21st century by 1.5-2°C, and are very likely to exceed 2.6 to 3.1°C if the requirements of the Paris Agreement are not met. At present, the value of atmospheric CO2 surpasses 400 ppm, a level that has never been encountered since the Pliocene, when temperatures were a few degrees higher than today. The Pliocene setting of the Earth system could be used as a model for future climate, based on the (mostly) similar topographical and hydrological settings, but efforts to understand Pliocene climate might be hampered by the reduced knowledge of geomorphological processes such as mountain uplift. During the Pliocene, the most striking feature of SE Europe was the existence of large, inter-connected lakes that were part of the Paratethys domain. As well, the Carpathian-Balkan range was continuing its recently rejuvenated uplift. The aim of our project is to investigate large-scale environmental variability between the Pliocene and the present in SE Europe in order to better understand if Pliocene interglacials could be used as a model for future warmer climates. For this, we will use oxygen stable isotopes from speleothems, mammal tooth enamel, and ostracods, in order to create a series of isotopic snapshots, supported by ostracod and pollen paleoecological and climate reconstructions. We will further use this information to test if the Pliocene environments would be replicated in the nearest future in SE Europe.
Project
The project "Interdisciplinary Institutional Platform for Excellence in Research, Development, Innovation and Professional Training in Archaeological Sciences (ArchaeoScience # RO)" aims at introducing a field of research unmatched yet at the university level in our country – Archaeological Sciences. The project will be run during the 2018-2020 period, through the Research Institute of the University of Bucharest (ICUB). The ICUB will provide the implementation of the project affiliated research group bringing together specialists from several departments – Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geography, History, Geology and Geophysics, in collaboration with the Department of Psychology and Educational Sciences and with the logistic support offered by The IT & C Directorate and the Research Program Management Division. The implementation of the project "Interdisciplinary Institutional Platform of Excellence in Research, Development, Innovation and Professional Training in the Field of Archaeological Sciences" implies the development of a common platform, facilitating the complex, interdisciplinary and integrative approach of the archaeological cultural heritage, by means of conducting research and training in archaeological and material immaterial cultural heritage (mobile and immobile). Following the implementation of this project, the University of Bucharest will be the first university in Romania to address the field of Archaeological Sciences. This approach represents an excellent opportunity to connect Romania to the existing research directions and programs in other European Union countries and around the world, in the context of the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage. The platform proposed for development will integrate a systematic, inter-, multi- and trans-disciplinary scientific research direction, organized by the Departments of History, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geography, Geology and Geophysics of the University of Bucharest, in order to meet the current Romanian and European needs, in line with the international trends. The research teams in the field of Archaeological Sciences from the departments mentioned above will be organised as five Research, Development, Innovation and Educational Training Units, grouped under the following sub-disciplines: i). Bioarchaeology – will address research directions such as archaeobotany, zooarchaeology, palaeoanthropology, palaeomicrobiology and paleoparasitology; ii). Geoarchaeology – will address research directions such as geomorphology, sedimentology, palaeohidrography, palaeogeography, palaeoenvironmental reconstructions, palaeorelief and landscape; iii). The Material Culture Studies – will address the research directions related to virtually all of the archaeometric analyses of monuments, archaeological artefacts and ecofacts (e.g. petrography, mineralogy, chromatography, XRF, XRD, FTIR, SEM-EDX, RAMAN, PIXE, etc.); iv). Digital Archaeology – will address research directions such as GIS analyses, statistical approaches, mathematical models, 3D modelling and reconstruction, non-intrusive prospects; v). Molecular Archaeology – will address the research directions related to the isotopic study of ecofacts and artefacts, paleogenetic analyses (aDNA) and residual analyses.
Project
The current project represents an original inter-, pluri-, multi-, and transdisciplinary approach of the Domain 6 problematics – Cultural identity and heritage. Through its structure and management, the goals put forth by the component projects, its synergies and complementarities, the project has, undoubtedly, a high degree of accomplishment, being a complex, integrative and exhaustive approach for Romania. Its results will have a great deal of impact within both national and international scientific communities and the general audience, contributing through the anticipated activities to strengthening, developing and perfecting the CDI system in our country, as well as, to the professional formation of the future Romanian researchers. Projects final goal is to provide a complex multidisciplinary inter-institutional platform for integrative and systematic research of the identities and tangible and non-tangible cultural heritage in Romania. The Consortium that will implement this complex project is coordinated by the University of Bucharest (CO-UB), in joint partnership with the Institute of Archaeology “Vasile Pîrvan” of the Romanian Academy (P1-IAB), National Research-Development Institute for Physics and Nuclear Engineering” Horai Hulubei” (P2-IFIN-HH), University” Al. I. Cuza” Iași (P3-UAIC), West University Timișoara (P4-UVT), National Institute of Materials Physics (P5-INCDFM), National Institute for Research and Development in Informatics – ICI Bucrești (P6-ICI), University ”Ovidius” Constanța (P7-UOC) and University of Oradea (P8-UO). The geographical distribution Romanian wise ensures, without a doubt, a good regional representation of the juridical entities extant in the consortium. This partnership between 5 universities and 3 national research institutes signifies an ideal combination for the sustainability and the implementation of such a complex project.
