Abstract

The depositional record of this 200 m thick succession reveals a complex interplay between biologically and chemically dominated sedimentation within the lake and pulses of coarse clastic detritus that punctuate the fine-grained sequences along the margins of the former lake. These successions are interpreted as representing a predominantly dry late Pleistocene climate in which occasional intense storms flushed colluvial debris into the former lake
