A paleoenvironmental history of the Vosges for 30,000 years

Since the maximum cooling of Würm, the last Quaternary glaciation, the climate of Western Europe is warming slowly. This warming is punctuated by brief "cold snaps", some of which have left their mark on the landscape. Thus, in the Vosges mountains, the removal of the ice left in place front moraines behind which lakes and peat bogs have formed whose sediments record since the climatic changes as well as the impact of the human presence (agricultural activities). pastoral, mining ...).

This conference aims to present a reconstruction of the recent paleoenvironmental history (30000 years) of the Vosges mountains, while explaining the methods used to realize it.

Anne Véronique Walter-Simonnet is a teacher-researcher at the University of Franche-Comté.
