Extent of Pleistocene Lakes in the Western Great Basin

During the Pliocene to middle Pleistocene, pluvial lakes in the western Great Basin repeatedly rose to levels much higher than those of the well-documented late Pleistocene pluvial lakes, and some presently isolated basins were connected. Sedimentologic,

Sediment Magnetic and Paleomagnetic Data from Buck Lake, Oregon

Sediment magnetic and paleomagnetic studies were conducted on a core from Buck Lake, Klamath County, Oregon, that was collected as part of an investigation into the Quaternary climate history of the western United States. This report documents the method

Sediment Magnetic and Geochemical Data from Quaternary Lacustrine Sediment in Two Cores from Tule Lake, Siskiyou County, California

Sediment magnetic and geochemical results have been obtained from the top 60 meters of lacustrine sediments recovered in two cores from Tule Lake in northern California. The sediment magnetic and geochemical data, presented here in tabular form, compleme

Sediment Magnetic and Paleomagnetic Data from Buck Lake, Oregon

Sediment magnetic, paleomagnetic and geochemical results have been obtained from lacustrine sediments recovered in a 30-meter core taken by rotary drilling methods at Grass Lake, Siskiyou County, California. The data have been analyzed and interpreted in
