Article
Full-text available
Constraining the controls on the distribution of sediment at a continental scale is a critical step in understanding long-term landscape and climate evolution. In particular, understanding of the role of rivers in wider sediment routing and impacts on aeolian loess formation on a continental scale remains limited. Extensive Quaternary loess deposit...

Loess deposits along the northern fringe of the European loess belt potentially record past changes in dust emission from areas proximal to former ice sheets. Recent chronologies from loess deposits across this region generally agree on greatly enhanced dust deposition rates when the Fennoscandian Ice Sheet reached its maximum extent during the lat...
Article
Full-text available
The source of aeolian sediments such as loess has been investigated since decades. Reliable knowledge on potential dust sources is crucial to understand past climatic and environmental conditions accompanying the dispersal of early modern humans (EMH) into Europe. Provenance studies are usually performed on small sample sets and most established me...

The sources of the Paleocene London Basin marine to fluviodeltaic sandstones are currently unclear. High analysis number detrital zircon U-Pb age investigation of an early-mid Thanetian marine sand from East Kent, reveals a large spread of zircon age peaks indicative of a range of primary sources. In particular, a strong Ediacaran age peak is assoc...

Loess deposits in southern Britain contain a record of dust, climate and landscape dynamics over the last glacial, yet their age and accumulation rate remain poorly known. Furthermore, the environmental controls on the loess-soil stratigraphy shown in the thickest deposits in southeast England are still debated. Here we apply the first high samplin...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
On the territory of Serbia, Pleistocene aeolian deposits are mainly distributed in the Vojvodina region where they cover large areas only separated by the alluvial plains and terraces of the Danube and Tisza rivers. Unlike the loess sequences in the Vojvodina, in northeastern Serbia the loess formations are quite discontinuous. In this region we ma...

Full-text available
Most of the loess sites in northeastern Serbia are situated on the bank of the Danube River. These sections are not characterized by the continuity as are the loess formations in Vojvodina. In this region we can mainly find smaller, isolated sections lying over older slopes and river terraces. The loess in this region can be described as a typical...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The magnitude of volcanic eruptions and the volume of ejected magma control amongst other factors the thickness and geographical extent of tephra layers. Here we present and discuss new data on the extent of the "L2-Tephra" preserved in loess-palaeosol sequences (LPSs) on the Balkan Peninsula. Magnetic susceptibility and colorimetric data from the...
