Lakes in the Sahara doi

Large bodies of water in the middle of the desert are not only a natural spectacle, they also contain extremely precise environmental archives. Sediments extracted from these lakes document climate evolution and provide information on dust storms, savannah fires and volcanic eruptions. A journey to north-east Chad By Stefan Kröpelin

Distinct lake level lowstand in Lake Prespa (SE Europe) at the time of the 74 (75) ka Toba eruption doi Spatial

The 74 (75) ka Toba eruption in Sumatra, Indonesia, is considered to be one of the largest volcanic events during the Quaternary. Tephra from the Toba eruption has been found in many terrestrial and marine sedimentary deposits, and acidity peaks related to the eruption have been used to synchronize ice core records from Greenland and Antarctica. Seismic profiles and sedimentological data from Lake Prespa on the Balkan Peninsula, SE Europe, indicate a lake level lowstand at 73.6 7.7 ka based on ESR dating...

Climate variability over the last 92 ka in SW Balkans from analysis of sediments from Lake Prespa Spatial

The transboundary Lake Prespa (Albania/former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia/Greece) has been recognized as a conservation priority wetland. The high biodiversity encountered in the catchment at present points to the refugial character of this mountainous region in the southwestern Balkans. A lake sediment core retrieved from a coring location in the northern part of the lake was investigated through sedimentological, geochemical, and palynological analyses. Based on tephrochronology, radiocarbon and...
