The general objective of this research project is to contribute to the understanding of Late-Quaternary climate history of contrasting Antarctic environments. The specific objective is to construct and validate transfer functions for fossilizable prootists (diatoms and stomatocysts). The application of these models together with other proxies (e.g. molecular tools) will be used to interpret sediment cores from coastal Antarctic lakes.
