NamCore: 91.5 m depth reached

First core on deck!

Nam Co represents one of the largest and deepest lakes on the Tibetan Plateau. Due to this location in the modern monsoon regime (wind, precipitation), paleoclimate proxies reflect the spatial and temporal development of large-scale atmospheric circulation systems. A continuous, high-resolution, record for these long time scales from Nam Co will further enable to study sediment budget changes under varying climatic and tectonic settings, and contribute to a better understanding of the Quaternary geomagnetic field. Learn more about the project on its project page and in the Daily News.
