Description :
Postglacial sediments from Lake Jues were investigated for pollen, diatoms and sediment characteristics. The paper focuses on the time period between 7600 and 1200 y cal.BP, during which human impact began to influence the environment of the lake. Climate variability was mainly inferred from sediment characteristics and changes in algal assemblages. The observed climatic changes coincide well with those recorded from other sites. The study shows that climate strongly influenced human settlement at remote locations like Lake Jues.
