Project

Reconstruction of past hydrological change and vegetation dynamics in south-east Africa (VR-U-forsk, 348-2013-6241, PI Elin Norström, Stockholm University)

Description

Location: Inhambane province, Mozambique. Coordinates: 23°57′52″S, 34°56′55″E. Type of core: lacustrine. Proxy data (phytoliths and diatoms) from Lake Chilau are given on depth and age scale. The dataset is included in one xlsx file with two data sheets. (1) Phytolith data: Phytolith morphotypes identified in each studied level, expressed as percentage of total count; Environmental sensitive morphotypes and grouping of morphotypes (Figure 5, 6 in Norström et al., 2017). Data avaibable from 35 levels. (2) Diatom data: Diatom taxa identified in each studied level, expressed as percentage of total count. Data available from 31 levels.
