Factors affecting 14C ages of lacustrine carbonates : timing and duration of the Last Highstand Lake in the Lahontan Basin

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The purposes of this paper are to determine when corrections for low initial [14]C/c ratios in lake water should be made and which Lahontan carbonates listed in published carbonate [14]C data bases (e.g., Benson, 1978, 1981; Benson et al., 1991) have remained closed systems with respect to the isotopes of carbon. Based on these determinations, the most reliable of the carbonate [14]C ages are used to calculate carbonate accumulation rates. The accumulation rates then are applied to the measured thickness of highstand carbonates and used to estimate the timing and duration of the last Lake Lahontan highstand
