SSP3.3Limnogeology - reading the geological record of lakes (sponsored by the IAS)
|Convener: Hendrik Vogel | Co-Conveners: Marc De Batist , Martin Melles , Daniel Ariztegui|
During the past decades numerous sediment records have become available from lakes and paleolakes through shallow and (ICDP) deep drilling. These records have proven to be valuable archives of past environmental conditions and geological events. We invite contributions emphasizing quantitative and spatial assessments of rates of change, causes and consequences of long- and short-term climate variability, impact, magnitude, and frequency of tectonic and volcanic activity as deduced from sedimentological, geochemical, biological, and chronological tools.
