Nestali jezerski krajobrazi istočnog dijela Jadranskog mora

Lost Lake Landscapes of the Eastern Adriatic Shelf


The LoLADRIA project represents a multidisciplinary, effort to recover, for the first time, long paleoenvironmental, and paleoclimate records from existing coastal karst lakes and submerged karstic lakes of the eastern Adriatic shelf in Croatia. The project will attempt to reconstruct the specific karst lake landscapes and their surroundings in view of environmental and climate change and human migration from the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) through the Holocene. LoLADRIA will provide long, high resolution, paleohydrological reconstructions from a region extremely sensitive to changes in effective moisture and atmospheric dynamics. The multiproxy-based reconstructed curves will provide new data to identify and date the main climate events, and to characterize the climate variability at century and millennium scale since the LGM. Pollen and ostracods offer the possibility to develop transfer functions in order to reconstruct quantitative changes in regional climate and hydrological conditions of the lakes. LoLADRIA will offer an environmental context which enabled the human entrance to Europe along the eastern Adriatic shelf since this pathway is still widely unknown and the detailed framework of climatic and environmental conditions still requires extensive research. In combination with landscape reconstruction based on high resolution geophysical methods will allow the insight to the preserved changes in the landscapes at selected sites along the Eastern Adriatic and their habitability related to the Mesolithic cultures that were present there. Submarine prehistoric sites in the Mediterranean show that the continental shelf was occupied by humans to a depth of at least -40m, and the lost (submarine) lakes and surrounding submerged landscapes of the eastern Adriatic have a potential for site discovery.
