Changing climate and degrading agricultural land are global challenges for agriculture and forest production. These pressing issues together with dwindling natural resources will increase the pressure on agri-food systems and forestry at the same time as we have to provide sufficient, safe and nutritious food for a growing world population. For example, warmer and wetter Nordic summers will require new, adapted plants for retained production and yield stability. Milder winters will allow new plant pathogens to migrate north leading to a changed plant pathogen pressure in the Nordic countries.
To understand the history of human activity recorded in these deposits we need to know exactly when the dust was deposited, and what the past climate and environment was like. Dating the dust and the tools is at the heart of this project.
