Located at the transition between the Saharan and Sahelian zones, at the center of one of the largest endorheic basins, Lake Chad is ideally located to record regional environmental changes that occurred in the past. However, until now, no Holocene archive was directly cored in this lake. In this paper, we present pollen data from the first sedimentary sequence collected in Lake Chad (13 ◦ N; 14 E; Sahel region). Dated between ca. 6700 and ca. 5000 cal yr BP, this record is continuous and… CONTINUE READING
