PhD Project

Palaeoenvironmental changes and climate variability during Holocene in the Bernese Alps reconstructed from lichenometric dating studies on alluvial cone records.

The study focuses on lichenometric studies on talus of Rizocarpon geographicum obtained at the Spreitlaui and Wachtlammgraben alluvial cones at the Aare valley, Switzerland, in order to contribute to greater understanding and accuracy the environmental and climatic changes that occurred in the last 1000 years.


Participation in research groups

Fluvalps Research Group - Fluvial Variability in Alpine Environments, University of Barcelona.
