Janina Bösken, Project B1

The B1 team from Aachen investigates the paleoenvironmental conditions during this migration and Janina’s focus lies on luminescence dating. She investigates mainly loess-paleosol sequences, but also fluvial sands within an archeological excavation are part of her research. Also, the analysis and visualization with GIS is an important aspect of her PhD.

In this presentation she will elaborate the investigation of the B1 team in Hungary, Serbia and Romania and she will show how geochronology contributes to this. Furthermore, several profiles and their timing will be shown and the challenges and implications will be explained. Finally, some examples of the GIS analysis will be presented.

Analysis of Migration Processes due to Environmental Conditions between 40,000 and 14,000 a BP in the Balkan region through Luminescence Dating

bösken_banner
This PhD topic lies within the B1 project, which deals with the paleoenvironmental conditions during modern human migration through southeastern Europe. A multi-proxy approach combining sedimentology, geochemistry, rock magnetism and luminescence dating is applied on loess-paleosol sequences on geoarchives in Hungary, Serbia and Romania.
