FWG lake sediments paper

fwg paleoflood water 18Members of PAGES' Floods Working Group (FWG) recently published an invited review in the journal Water Security.

Bruno Wilhelm et al. review major methodological and technological advancements in the study of lake sediments with the aim to showcase new, robust and continuous paleoflood series. Methodological advancements of flood archives such as tree rings and speleothems are also addressed.

Recent developments in these fields have resulted in a growing paleoflood community that opens for cross-disciplinary analysis and synthesis of large data sets to meet the pressing scientific challenges in understanding changes in flood frequency and magnitude.
