This study provides a record for the timing and magnitude of lake-level fluctuation in the Pyramid Lake subbasin during part of the last 400,000 yr. The AA. use uranium-series methods to determine the ages of some of the tufa varieties discussed in Benson (1994). Furthermore, they compare the new U-series ages to create a more complete chronology independent of C 14 ages
