Abstract

Quantitative analyses of variations in morphological features of charcoal were undertaken in a Pb-dated sediment core from Prosser Lake, British Columbia. Seven morphological types of charcoal were defined by particle shape, major-minor axis ratio, apparent porosity and progradation to unburned material. Charcoal morphotypes showed distinct relationships to recorded area burned by fires. Finally, the AA. speculate about the relationships between the various charcoal morphotypes and their relationship to fire type, the mechanisms of charcoal transportation and burial in lake sediments
