Clemens Schmitt

Project B1

My name is Clemens Schmitt and I am a geologist at Senckenberg Biodiversity and Climate Research Center. In my project, I am estimating the prevailing climatic conditions in Central Europe during past warm climates. By analyzing organic molecules (biomarkers) that are preserved in ancient lake sediments, I can reconstruct changes in temperature and precipitation.

More information about this project can be found on the B1-project page.
