Project description

This project will (1) reconstruct variations in paleoclimate (Late Glacial, Holocene), based on multi-proxy sedimentological and geochemical studies of sedimentary records from two lakes in Chilean Patagonia, and (2) compare these new data and integrate them with data generated by a number of ongoing studies on marine and fjord sediments.
