The late Quaternary limnological history of Lake Kinneret (Sea of Galilee), Israel


The AA. reconstructed the limnological history (level and composition) of Lake Kinneret during the past 40,000 years and compared it with the history of the contemporaneous Lake Lisan from the aspect of the regional and global climate history. The lake level reconstruction was achieved through a chronological and sedimentological investigation of rxposed sedimentary sections in the Kinnarot basin trenches and cores drilled at the Ohalo II archeological site. Shoreline chronology was established by radiocarbon dating of organic remains and of Melanopsis shells
