We finished our first expedition to Bolkar Mountains! We sampled the alpine lakes across the Bolkar Mountains range between the altitudes 2700-3300 m. We try to understand how these remote and isolated aquatic ecosystems respond to climate change and other anthropogenic disturbances. We conducted snap shot samplings as well as sediment cores for paleolimnology.

The expedition was conducted between 21st September 2019 and 25th September 2019. We aim at contributing to better understanding and protection of alpine lakes .
