Coring the Mondsee

This week I’ve been coring two 12-meter long sediment cores from the Mondsee, a lake in a middle of a stunning landscape (see picture) near Salzburg (Austria). Colleagues from Bern (Switzerland) brought all the equipment and savoir-faire, and did most of the job. Thank you so much Sandra, willy and Armin! I was on the platform to help them, as well as Christophe and Gerry (thanks to you too). It was a great and funny adventure, coring a lake was a premi√®re for me, I learnt a lot. Next chapter will be the results of the pollen analyses from these sediments…

Here is also a nice paper about the project.
