The data sets includes pollen records from 16 sediment cores taken at the margins of Lake Tiefer See / north-eastern Germany. The sediment cores were primarily studied to produce a lake level reconstruction for Tiefer See. Pollen analysis was applied for pollen stratigraphic dating of the sediments in comparison with a high resolution pollen record from the centre of Lake Tiefer See. Moreover, pollen analysis was also used to infer past water levels trough time at the core locations. The sediment cores for pollen analysis were taken and analysed between 2012 and 2017, either from the ice or a raft. For coring either a piston corer or a chamber corer were used. Only three of the sediment records (TS-2, TS-3, TS-17) cover the Holocene largely continuously, the others mainly only cover early- or late Holocene sections.
