Pollen data of the last 500 ka BP at Lake Ohrid (south-eastern Europe)


Here we present the pollen data obtained for the DEEP core of Lake Ohrid located at the border between Albania and F.Y.R. of Macedonia. The very long sequence covers the last 500 ka BP in ca. 200 m. The study has been carried out by several European palynological laboratories. The age model of this part of the core is based on 10 tephra layers and on tuning of biogeochemical proxy data to orbital parameters. The original paper, published by Sadori et al. 2016 (https://doi.org/10.5194/bg-13-1423-2016), has been followed by a corrigendum due to chemical procedure problems that affected 104 samples. The record shows a progressive change from cooler and wetter to slightly warmer and drier interglacial conditions. This shift in temperature and moisture availability is visible also in vegetation during glacial periods. Pollen results support the notion that Lake Ohrid has been a refugium area for both temperate and montane trees during glacials.
