Scientific Collaboration On Past Speciation Conditions in Lake Ohrid

2008     brd

The hydro acoustic and seismic survey of Lake Ohrid was continued this year in order to obtain a denser grid of profiles and a more detailed picture of the sediment architecture. Moreover, in 2008, the cores recovered from lakes Ohrid and Prespa in 2007 were studied in detail. Whilst the core from Lake Ohrid represented the environmental history of the last ca. 131 000 years, that from Lake Prespa spans the last ca. 45 000 years. An ICDP-Workshop  in the city of Ohrid, and organized by the Hydrobiological Institute Ohrid, Macedonia, takes place in autumn 2008. 34 scientists from eleven countries participate in the workshop and agree to prepare a full proposal for a deep drilling campaign at Lake Ohrid.
