Abstract

The AA. report data on the distribution of the isotopes of uranium and thorium in water and sediment from two drainage systems in the Lahontan Basin. These data are used to perform model calculations of ages of tufa samples from the Lahontan Basin. The calculated ages are then used to construct a tentative lake-level chronology for both the Walker lake and Pyramid Lake subbasins
