Lake Sediments & flooding, with particular reference to Cumbria

Zoom Meeting Information

Meeting ID: 886 6258 1891
Passcode: 4365649

In this talk, Daniel will explore how sediment cores extracted from multiple Cumbrian lakes can shed new light on flood frequency and magnitude over the last 1500 years. Daniel will review the physical processes which enable lakes to record sedimentary signatures of past floods, illustrate the value of these datasets in extending flood histories beyond conventional instrumental data from river gauging stations and outline what these sedimentary flood reconstructions can (and cannot yet) tell us about past, current and future trends in flooding across northwest England.
