Abstract

An 8.59 m long sediment core was retrieved from Lake Trasimeno (central Italy) with the aim of performing a palaeoclimatic and palaeoenvironmental reconstruction. In this study we present, for the first time in central Italy, a quantitative palaeotemperatures reconstruction based on ostracod assemblages. The mean winter (January) and summer (July) palaeotemperatures were estimated from 44,000 to 9,000 cal yr BP by using the Mutual Ostracod Temperature Range (MOTR) method. Of the total of 19 ostracod species recovered, 13 of them were used as reliable palaeotemperature proxies on the base of their living temperature ranges.
