Abstract:
This proposal aims to (1) investigate tele-connections between Late Quaternary climate changes at the high latitudes in the Southern hemisphere and the northern hemisphere, (2) study the link between ice shelf loss and climate optima in Antarctica and (3) deliver high-resolution data to test and calibrate recently developed climate models. Therefore, biological proxies will be analyzed in lake-sediment cores.
