You might wonder what changes have the environment experienced since the last ice age until today? How has the landscape changed and how have flora and fauna responded to variations in climate and human activity? If you attend this course you will be able to answer such questions and obtain knowledge of up-to-date methods in palaeoclimatology and landscape history. You will also learn how to date and analyze various types of geological material and become familiar with a range of palaeoecological techniques. During field work we will collect sediment cores and analyze them in the laboratory, using various techniques. The results will be presented in a poster. Lectures are combined with the analytical work and seminars.
