Project: Analysis of Holocene climate variations as recorded in lacustrine sediments from Antarctica and sub-Antarctica

01-OCT-06 – 30-SEP-09

This study contributes to the high-quality palaeoclimate archive of the southern hemisphere. Accurate knowledge of the timing of climatic fluctuations will elicit or contradict the existence of an "out-of-phase"-relationship with the northern hemisphere. The research emphasis variations in terrigenous sediment fluxes in lacustrine basins as a proxy for variations in meltwater input and/or precipitation.
