The late early to early middle Eocene (~48 Ma) maar lake sediments of the famous Messel fossil-pit, located near Darmstadt, SW Germany, represent a prime archive for climate dynamics operating during the geologically most recent greenhouse period of the Earth. In this study, we investigate the potential of geochemical data obtained via high-resolution XRF core scanning to decipher hydrologic variability from the Messel sediments. Such data have the potential to yield insight into the paleoenvironmental...
