Past hydroclimate changes on the southern Thar Desert margin
The evolution of the southern Thar Desert margin, which was once densely populated ca. 5000 years ago during the Bronze Age, is unexplored. This project aims to reconstruct high resolution hydroclimate changes across the last 10,000 years using lake sediments from the southern Thar Desert margin.
