In 1362 AD, a major storm surge drowned wide areas of cultivated medieval marshland along the north‐western coast of Germany and turned them into tidal flats. This study presents a new methodological approach for the reconstruction of changing coastal landscapes developed from a study site in the Wadden Sea of North Frisia. First, we deciphered lon...

... The data coverage usually remains small, which can be expressed in either the amounts of data (<10 k), target classes (e.g., sediment facies and geochemical zones, <6), or features (e.g., measuring analytes, <10). For instance, input data are mostly geophysical measurements (e.g., seismic profiles and borehole logging data) 14,[18][19][20][21] or laborious measurements (e.g., grain-size variations and quantitative element concentrations) 15,17 , which have resolution limits (tens of centimeters to meters in scale). Target classes are thus often homogeneous sediments (e.g., unique tephra layers or sandstones) 16,[20][21][22] instead of complex units having the sedimentary structure in an mm scale (e.g., laminated stream channel deposits). ...
... The authors received funding from the German Research Foundation (DFG) in a project (RA 496/26-1, Byock et al. (2015)) situated in the frame of the Priority Program 1630 "Harbours from the Roman Period to the Middle Ages" (von Carnap-Bornheim and Kalmring, 2011). We would also like to thank the town of Mosfellsbaer and the National Museum of Iceland, the Icelandic Ministry of Education, Science and Culture, The Arcadia Trust, Norvik, the Norwegian Kulturdepartment, the UCLA Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies. ...
