The elevation of Lake Tilo

For my PhD, I studied the palaeolimnology of two lakes in the Ethiopian rift valley, using diatoms to reconstruct changes in the water chemistry of Lake Awassa, an oligosaline caldera lake which retains its low salinity despite having no effluent … Continue reading

Hydrological modelling of a small lake – implications for palaeohydrology

Palaeohydrological studies on closed-lakes (lakes without an outflowing river) make a lot of sense. I did my PhD on this type of system in Ethiopia. When the precipitation/evaporation ratio is high, lake level is high and salinity is low, and … Continue reading
