Ultra-distal fine ash occurrences of the Icelandic Askja-S Plinian eruption deposits in Southern Carpathian lakes: New age constraints on a continental scale tephrostratigraphic marker

Abstract:

Here we present the results of the first cryptotephra investigation of two Late glacial-Holocene lake records from the Southern Carpathian Mountains in Romania, Lake Brazi and Lake Lia. The discovery of an important Icelandic tephrostratigraphic marker, the Askja-S, in the sedimentary records of both sites significantly extends the known ash dispersal from this Plinian eruption. Bayesian age-depth modelling of available radiocarbon (14C) data from both sedimentary records allows us to further...
