"Morphoevolution of the Seymareh landslide-dam lake system (Zagros Mountains, Iran): Implications for Holocene climate and environmental changes", on Geomorphology
The giant Seymareh landslide (Zagros Mts, Iran) of 44 Gm3 detached 10 ka ca., creating a landslide-dam lake system along the Seymareh River valley.
The research group of the Earth Science Department of Sapienza University and the Department of Sciences of Roma Tre University finds evidence of the key role of the Holocene climatic variations on the lake overflowing phase.
Field investigations and multi-proxy analysis over a 30-m thick lacustrine sequence support the hypothesis of the lake system overflow as a high-magnitude extreme hydrological event (sensu Gregory et al., 2006) likely related to minor local climate oscillation.
