Lake-sediment records of recent environmental change on Svalbard: results of diatom analysis
Surface sediments from 23 lakes on Svalbard were analysed for diatoms. 182 taxa were found but samples generally have a low richness, with the majority of sites dominated by benthic genera such as Fragilaria, Navicula, and ...
Distribution and autecology of chrysophyte cysts from high Arctic Svalbard lakes: preliminary evidence of recent environmental change
Chrysophycean stomatocyst assemblages were analysed from the sediments of 17 lakes and ponds from Svalbard as one component of a multi-proxy investigation of recent environmental change in the high Arctic. Sediment cores ...
Multi-proxy studies in palaeolimnology
Multi-proxy studies are becoming increasingly common in palaeolimnology. Eight basic requirements and challenges for a multi-proxy study are outlined in this essay – definition of research questions, leadership, site ...
Recent environmental change and atmospheric contamination on Svalbard as recorded in lake sediments – synthesis and general conclusions
The major patterns of biostratigraphical and geochemical change detected in a multidisciplinary study on recent environmental change and atmospheric contamination on Svalbard are summarised and synthesized. The patterns ...
Recent environmental change and human impact on Svalbard: the lake-sediment geochemical record
As part of a broader investigation into recent environmental change on Svalbard, the inorganic geochemical record of six lake-sediment cores was analysed. The major temporal trends in sediment elemental composition are ...
