Palaeoclimate of the Holocene

Project Lead

Involved Partners


The first three stalagmites from the Bleßberg Cave (BB-1, BB-2, BB-3) grew during the last 10,000 years or so, the Holocene. By analysing stable isotopes and trace elements, various aspects of the past environmental and climatic conditions will be reconstructed. Although there are already first interesting published results, the investigation of these samples continues.
