Oldest sediments from the source region of 'Homo sapiens sapiens'

A 40 m long sediment core from Chew Bahir/southern Ethiopia was already recovered in April 2014 funded exclusively by the CRC 806. Since the core opening the material is processed in the lab facilities of the Institute of Geology and Mineralogy at the University of Cologne.Preliminary results of sedimentological and palaeobiological proxies are already internally discussed and we work currently on a first age model to put the palaeolimnological p...
