Evaluating branched tetraether lipid-based palaeotemperature proxies in an urban, hyper-eutrophic polluted lake in South Africa

Abstract

The branched glycerol dialkyl glycerol tetraethers (br-GDGTs) based methylation index of branched tetraethers/cyclisation ratio of branched tetraethers (MBT/CBT) proxy was applied for reconstructing the recent local changes in mean air temperature (MAT) in a sediment core collected from Lake Zeekoevlei. Lake Zeekoevlei is the largest freshwater lake in… (More)
