New coring campaign on Lake Eibsee

30.10.2016


Sibylle Knapp and Flavio Anselmetti went out for a sediment coring campaign on Lake Eibsee. They retrieved nine cores at four coring locations through up to ~5 meters of lake sediments and rock material. The coring locations were chosen according to the reflection seismic profiles which were obtained in May 2015. The coring campaign will help to decipher and date several mass movement events that reached the lake basin, understand mobility processes, and finally reconstruct the rock-slope failure history of Mount Zugspitze.

During fieldwork, Michael Krautblatter showed our visitor John Clague from Canada round the Eibsee rock avalanche.
