Abstract

Chemical analyses of the acid-soluble and clay-size fractions of sediment samples (1500-yr resolution) reveal oscillations of lake salinity and of glacial advances in core OL-92 back to 155,000 yr B.P. The AA. found that the mineralogy and chemistry of the clay fraction provide indices of glacial rock flour. They also report on the composition of the acid-soluble carbonate fraction which gives further detail on closed-lake conditions
