Ugandan Crater Lakes
Western Uganda boasts about 60 crater lakes that range from shallow, hypersaline systems to deep, anoxic, dilute lakes. In collaboration with Dr. Dirk Verschuren, we have cored many of these lakes to depths of up to 13 meters. Ongoing research seeks to understand high-frequently climate fluctuations recorded in thelinkages to climate changes elsewhere in tropical Africa.
