Glacial overdeepenings are deeply incised, elongated channels that are formed by erosion at the sole of glaciers. Impressive overdeepenings are known from the Alps, which result from the repeated extensive glaciations during the Quaternary (last 2,56 million years). The sedimentary sequences that fill the overdeepenings today are important but poorly explored geological archives of glaciation history and landscape evolution. The research project Drilling Overdeepened Alpine Valleys (DOVE) explores glacial overdeepenings around the Alps using geophysical methods and drilling. One of the drill sites is located in Basadingen-Schlattingen (Canton Thurgau/Switzerland), where a 252 m long sediment sequence was drilled out of a backfilled overdeepening. The still ongoing research will contribute to a better understanding of the Quaternary climate and environmental history of the Alps and the formation of glacial overdeepenings.
