Natural Sciences, Geology (N005)

Institute, laboratory: Institute of Geology and Geography, Laboratory of Quaternary Research

Scientific Supervisor: Dr Vaida Šeirienė

Consultant Supervisor: Dr Tatiana Napreenko-Dorokhova

Study period: 01-10-2021 – 30-11-2025

Research theme: Reconstruction of the postglacial environmental changes in the south-eastern Baltic based on micropaleontological studies

The aim of the work is reconstruction of the development history of the Nemunas River Delta area during the Late Glacial and Holocene by multiproxy studies.

The main research tasks are:

1. To identify diatom complexes of wetland and lake bottom sediments located in the Nemunas River delta area;

2. To characterize the palaeobasin development stages according to diatom analysis data;

3. To correlate diatom analysis data with palaeobotanical, isotope, lithological etc. studies;

4. To correlate of identified paleo-environmental changes with those in neighbouring areas and globally recorded.
