Reconstructing fire regimes from geochemical proxies in Late Quaternary soils Spatial Temporal

Changes in ecosystems and land use frequently went along with regional burning events, but how fires accompanied human development, the onset of agriculture and changes in climate has eluded researchers. I hypothesised that information on past burning events may be reconstructed from the geochemical analyses of black carbon (BC), the residue of incomplete combustion. To test this hypothesis, it was the aim of my theses i) to elucidate the quantitative and qualitative characteristics of BC produced by...
