A core from Meerfelder Maar, with a basal age of 29,000 years, provides a continuous sedimentary sequence from Late-Glacial times to the present. It includes the stratigraphical marker of the Laach Pumice Tuff. Sedimentological, geochemical, palynological, palaeobiological, palaeomagnetic and palaeontological analyses permit reconstructions of the history of the lake and its catchment area, and hence of the climate of the region, to be made. The discovery of Middle Oligocene marine, detrital fossils in the maar sediments provides insights into the palaeogeography of the Eifel region during Tertiary times.
