A close cooperation exists with the research project 'CAUSAL', which is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) since 2015 and focuses on the reconstruction of the paleoenvironment and climate in the winter rainfall zone of South Africa. For this purpose, sediment cores are investigated, which have been recovered during a RAiN expedition in 2014 from the Verlorenvlei.
