|Summary of thesis||
Overdeepened glacial troughs were formed by subglacial erosion during past glaciations. The inlls of these overdeepenings often contain stacked and nested glacial sequences
that potentially represent the most complete direct archives of the past glaciations in the European Alps. The Drilling Overdeepened Alpine Valley (DOVE) project currently
investigates these overdeepened glacial troughs all around the Alps with a series of scientic drillings performed under the umbrella of the International Continental Scientic
Drilling Program (ICDP). The DOVE project focuses on aspects of environmental dynamics during the Quaternary, especially on the glaciation, vegetation, and landscape history.
By a combined eort of scientists from across the Alps and beyond, DOVE will apply interdisciplinary state-of-the-art concepts and methods, to decipher the spatio-temporal
impact of the numerous glaciations on the Alps.
