The peat bog is located at 2150 m a.s.l. in the timberline ecotone of the Zillertal Alps in the Central Eastern Alps....

Abstract

A total number of 177 dendrochronologically dated samples from subfossil logs found in the Schwarzensteinmoor, Zillertal Alps, were investigated for indicators of past snow avalanche events. The samples (species: Pinus cembra L.) are up to approx. 9000 years old. Different indicators for...

Abstract

The pollen, extrafossil and macrofossil results from three bog localities Schwarzensteinmoor, Schwarzensteinalpe and Schwarzen-Steinboden permit detailed reconstruction of vegetation, climate, avalanche frequency and agro-pastoral activities for the last 10.000 years. The oldest peat sediments from ...
