  1. 1. Investigations of temporal changes in climate and the geomagnetic field via high-resolution radiocarbon dating

    University dissertation from Department of Geology, Lund University

    Author : Anette Mellström; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; wiggle-matching; Radiocarbon dating; 14C; 2800 cal BP; climate change; solar activity; palaeomagnetism; lake sediments; varves; post-depositional remanent magnetisation; PDRM; lock-in; peat deposits; Sweden;

    Abstract : Geological archives have shown periods of abrupt climate change in the relatively stable Holocene epoch (last ca. 11 700 years). One of these periods was around 2800 cal BP. Several records, mainly from Europe, reveal a shift towards wetter, cooler and windier conditions. READ MORE

  2. 2. Lake sediments around the Antarctic Peninsula archives of climatic and environmental changes

    University dissertation from Department of Geology, Lund University

    Author : Rolf Zale; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Lake sediments; Antarctic Peninsula; radiocarbon dating; climatic and environmental changes; sediment chemistry; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : Lakes and lake sediments from four areas around the Antarctic Peninsula are described.The concentrations of trace metals in sediment are found to be a useful tool in distinguishing between the different sedimentary phases during a transition from marine to limnic environment.

  3. 3. People of the Dolmens and Stone Cists An archaeogenetic Investigation of Megalithic Graves from the Neolithic Period on Gotland

    University dissertation from Department of Geology, Lund University

    Author : Magdalena Fraser; Kjel Knutsson; Mattias Jakobsson; Paul Wallin; Anders Götherström; Per Åke Persson; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; archaeology; aDNA; ancient genomics; archaeogenetics; mtDNA; osteology; radiocarbon dating; Strontium; Carbon; Nitrogen; TRB; PWC; BAC; CWC; dolmen; stone cist; population demography; diet; mobility; cultural duality; admixture; kinship; Neolithic period; Early Bronze Age; Europe; Baltic Sea area; Scandinavia; Gotland; Molekylär genetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : The study of ancient genomics of pre-historic human remains has in recent years offered unprecedented knowledge regarding pre-historic migration and population structure on the European continent which has fundamentally altered the current views in the archaeological community. However, the merging of the two fields, archaeology and genetics, is still in its infancy and much work is still needed in order for these fields to integrate. READ MORE

  4. 4. Testing palaeomagnetic and 14C based geochronological methods in the Baltic Sea

    University dissertation from Department of Geology, Lund University

    Author : Bryan Lougheed; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Baltic Sea; coastal; geochronology; palaeomagnetic secular variation; PSV; radiocarbon; 14C; reservoir age; R t ; ΔR; salinity; δ18O; geomagnetic field; Holocene; deglacial; Fennoscandia.;

    Abstract : The Baltic Sea is a continental shelf sea that is influenced by both river runoff and marine water. The two water masses are vertically stratified in the Baltic Sea, resulting in a positive, estuarine circulation system, which has undergone changes in the past due to isostatic uplift of the Baltic basin.

  5. 5. Holocene vegetation dynamics and climate changes in the Torneträsk area, northern Sweden

    University dissertation from Department of Quaternary Geology, Lund University

    Author : Lena Barnekow; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Paleobotanik; palynology; phylogeny; Palaeobotany; northern Sweden; Torneträsk; Abisko; lake-level; radiocarbon dating; forest history; Holocene; tree-line; climate; Vegetation; fylogeni; palynologi; Physical geography; geomorphology; pedology; cartography; climatology; Fysisk geografi; geomorfologi; marklära; kartografi; klimatologi;

    Abstract : The aim of this study was to reconstruct the Holocene vegetation history and the climate changes in a subarctic area. The results are based on pollen and macrofossil records from six lakes in the Torneträsk area. The lakes are situated at altitudes between 370 and 999 m a.s. READ MORE
