Specialties of Martin Grosjean:
Climate Change, water resources, limnology, lake sediments, Pleistocene, Holocene, natural resources, Andes, Alps, geochemistry, sedimentology

Climate change and freshwatersystems
Research on changes in sediment fomation and sediment characteristics (geochemistry), nutrient cycling and physical properties of lakes as a function of Climate Change. This research is used both as a means to reconstruct climate and to study impacts of Climate Change.
