Wind is an important agent in forming the landscape and is largely controlled by environmental factors. Aeolian deposits can therefore be used to reconstruct past environments. The advent of Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) dating has allowed absolute dating of sediments that earlier had to rely on other dating methods. Among these sediments aeolian deposits are of particular interest since they are among the most favourable sediments to attain accurate ages from. Aeolian deposits are relatively sparse in Sweden, compared to other parts of Europe, and many of them have been mapped. However, few studies have been performed from a chronological and palaeoenvironmental perspective. This is something my PhD project aims to address.

The project will use a multiproxy approach with a combination of literature studies, geochronological, geomorphological, sedimentological and stratigraphical methods. A Geographic Information System (GIS) database will be constructed containing information concerning the examined aeolian deposits. This project will be the first major one for the Lund Luminescence Laboratory, Lund University, which was established in December 2011.
