Project: Investigation of the recent sediments in lake Rukwa (Tanzania).
- project duration
- 01-OCT-93 – 31-DEC-99
- A multidisciplinary study will be carried out on piston cores from Lake Rukwa, from sites determined by high-resolution reflection seismics. Modern analysis of the core samples will enable to quantify the 3D biogeochemical budget in the lake catchment ecosystem, and to determine the seasonality cyclicity during arid and humid phases and short climatic events for the last 130000 years.
