Lake Montcortès (southern Pyrenean flank). The most special feature of this lake is the occurrence of a continuous record of annually-laminated (varved) sediments extending back to approximately 3000 years (Bronze Age). The surrounding forests are dominated by evergreen and deciduous oak species. Photo V. Rull (November 2018).
