An INTIMATE and INQUA-funded workshop was held in Obergurgl, October 3-6, 2013
We welcome Gabriella Koltai to the group. During her PhD she will try to establish a precisely dated record of precipitation trends in the Vinschgau (northern Italy) for the last ca. 10,000 years based on carbonates.
After three years we went back to the Baumkirchen site and drilled two new cores which document 250 m of continuous lacustrine sedimentation during MIS 3 inside the Eastern Alps.
Two new studies explore the origin and palaeoenvironmental potential of calcite deposits - commonly annually laminated - formed in aqueducts built during Roman times.
