Abstract

Black mats are prominent features of the late Pleistocene and Holocene stratigraphic record in the southern Great Basin. Faunal, geochemical, and sedimentological evidence shows that the black mats formed in several microenvironments related to spring discharge, ranging from wet meadows to shallow ponds. Here the AA. report on the fauna found in the black mats, their C 14 ages, and the implications of these ages for major recharge periods in the region
