Master Thesis

Investigating the quaternary palaeoenvironment of the northern Peloponnesus (Greece)

picture Several topics for Master theses are currently available dealing on lab analyses of sediment cores from limnic or lagoonal environments. Main tasks are standard lab methods like loss on ignition, grain size analysis, CNS analysis or magnetic suszeptibility. The lab data is then compiled and inter-preted using specialized software like Matlab (for statistical analyses) and OxCal (for building up age-depth-models). At the moment, the master projects do not involve any fieldwork.  The investigations are one aspect of a research project at the Graduate School “human development in landscapes”, reconstructing the environmental history of the northern Peloponnesus during the Holocene and the Late Glacial (back to max. 40 ka BP).
