Environmental geological research in the Lake Balaton region

Geomorphology and changing environments in Central Europe

Description :
The research was focused mainly on surveying lake deposits, as well as the morphology and structure of the Pre-Quaternary lake deposits and the morphology and structure of the Pre-Quaternary basement of Lake Balaton. Paleontological investigations (pollen, diatoms, ostracods) in the 4 subbasins of the lake allowed the reconstruction of the ecological history of the area as well providing detailed stratigraphic information. Radiocarbon dating of peat helps to date the beginning of lake formation. In the Holocene increasing temperature and precipitation brought about a progressive rise in lake level.
