In the age of changing climate, it is extremely important to understand and predict climate changes and to implement measures that could minimize the negative effects of human economic activity leading to a climate warming. Paleolimnology is one of the main tools used in the reconstruction of climatic conditions prevailing in the Quaternary.
The main objective of the International Autumn School is the presentation of paleoecological methods to study the sediments of lakes as well as other lentic environments. All participants are invited to join to laboratory (chemical lab and microscope lab) and learn about the usefulness of invertebrates remains (e.g., shell, head, resting egg and chitinous parts) deposited in freshwater sediments.
