- Lithological and sedimentological characterization of lake sediment cores
- 14C dating and age-depth modelling
- Geochemical characterization of the YDB in lake sediments (XRF; μXRF; EDAX; ICP-MS; SEM; EPMA; EDS-WDS; C and N stable isotopes; analyses of C, H, N, S ratios; fractionation of sensitive elements such as Fe, Al, P; loss-on-ignition; analysis of potential tephras)
- Geophysical characterization of the YDB in lake sediments (magnetic susceptibility and magnetic remanence; magnetic and non-magnetic separation of MSPs)
- Micropaleontological techniques (analyses of remains of aquatic invertebrate fauna - chironomids and cladocerans; pollen analysis; plant macro-remain analysis)
