XRF core scanning data spanning the late MIS 6 to MIS 1 from Füramoos, Southern Germany


High-resolution XRF core scanning data (K/Al and Si/Ti) spanning the late MIS 6 to MIS 1 from Füramoos in Southern Germany at an average temporal resolution of ~45 years. Si/Ti is used to identify phases of increased precipition of biogenic silica (primarily diatoms). K/Al is primarily interpreted as a proxy for precipitation and utilizes two characteristics: (a) K is far more easily water soluble than Al and thus easier transported into the basin during periods of high weathering intensity, and (b) high Al is associated with increased dust transport into the basin. Thus, high K and low Al are interpreted as wet conditions, whereas low K and high Al stand fro dry periods. Our XRF-CS data indicate millennial-scale climate oscillations associated with Greenland Interstadials / Dansgaard-Oeschger Events during MIS 3 and 4 and are used to support the palynological data of the same study.
