Acknowledgement – Danksagung

My very special thanks go to my supervisor apl. Prof. Dr. Ulrich A. Glasmacher, who
sparked my interest in thermochronology and made my PhD project possible. Of course, I
particularly like to thank also my second supervisor Dr. Joaquina Alvarez-Marrón from
Barcelona who helped me tireless and unfailing during field work as well as during the
creation of this work in endless e-mail correspondence over continents (as Iberia is a
microcontinent). My sincere thanks also go to Prof. Dr. Cornelia Spiegel, who agreed to
write an expertise for the present PhD thesis. I also owe thanks to Prof. Dr. Jean Braun,
who supported the thermokinematic modelling part of this study not only by providing his
computer code PECUBE, but also by giving me feedback and guidance during the
modelling process. I am also grateful to Dr. Finlay Stuart and Dr. Luigia Di Nicola for
supporting me while doing the apatite (U-Th-Sm)/He analyses in Glasgow. Also, I am
especially grateful to Prof. Dr. Rosana Menendéz-Duarte and Prof. Dr. Susana Fernández-
Menendéz for supporting me during the field work in Asturias. I would also like to thank
Dr. Dennis Brown and Prof. Dr. Andrés Pérez-Estaún for their comments and feedback on
the manuscripts. Furthermore, I want to thank the whole staff of the ‘Research Group
Thermochronology and Archaeometry’ at the University of Heidelberg, namely Margit
Brückner and all of the student assitants who where involved in my project. Also, I want to
thank Jens Baumgärtner, my roommate and fellow in misery during the final weekends
before finishing our theses. Of course, I would like to particularly thank my friend and
roommate Manuel Sehrt for the long and profound discussions concerning
thermochronological and other questions of meaning, which I will sadly miss for sure.

Mein besonderer Dank gilt vor allem meinen Eltern und meiner Schwester Denise für ihre
bedingungslose Unterstützung, welche die Entstehung dieser Arbeit erst ermöglicht hat.
Nicht zuletzt möchte ich auch meinen Verwandten und Freunden für die uneingeschränkte
Unterstützung jeglicher Art danken. Mein größter Dank gilt meiner Freundin Rike, welche
mich während dieser Arbeit durch alle Höhen und Tiefen begleitet hat, und mich immer
motiviert hat wenn es schwierig wurde.

Danke!

Funding

Of course, I also owe thanks to the LGF committee (Landesgraduiertenförderung des
Landes Baden-Württemberg) for their confidence in me and the current project by granting
a 3-year PhD scholarship. I particularly thank the Spanish Ministry of Education and
Science for funding the project through the National Plan of Research, projects BTE2002-
00330 and CGL2007-60230/BTE. The study was included in the framework of Consolider-
Ingenio 2010, No. CSD2006-00041 (TOPO-IBERIA Project).
