Sediment Sample (Other Keyword)
1-7 (7 Records)
A single sediment sample from along the Quinault River in the western Olympic Peninsula, Washington, was floated to recover organic fragments suitable for radiocarbon analysis. This sample was recovered from a natural exposure along the river and is believed to represent silt that was likely deposited in Lake Quinault when it was higher than at present. Botanic components and detrital charcoal were identified, and potentially radiocarbon datable material was separated.
Monitoring of the Construction of the El Paso Natural Gas Pipeline Between Guadalupe Road and the Gila River Indian Community, Maricopa County, Arizona (1990)
Archaeological Consulting Services, Ltd. (ACS) monitored the excavation of an 11.73 mi (18.88 km) long trench for the El Paso Natural Gas (EPNG) pipeline in the cities of Mesa, Tempe, and Chandler. Archaeological monitoring was recommended because of the likelihood of crosscutting prehistoric irrigation canals and the close proximity of Alta Vista, a prehistoric Hohokam habitation site (AZ U:9:48 (ASM)). The monitoring was conducted in order to document these cultural resources when they became...
PHYTOLITH AND HUMATE EXTRACTION, TOPPER SITE (2006)

POLLEN ANALYSIS OF A SINGLE SAMPLE FROM THE OAHU 6 PROJECT, HONOLULU, OAHU, HAWAI’I (2007)
A single pollen sample was collected at a depth between 1.6 and 1.8 m below the surface in an industrial area of Honolulu at the Makoloa Electrical substation on Makaloa Street. Pollen analysis was undertaken to provide information as to whether this area had functioned as a fishpond and whether or not it contained pollen from European-introduced plants.
POLLEN AND MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS OF A SINGLE SAMPLE FROM THE WILKIN QUARRY, PANACA, NEVADA (2007)
A single sediment sample from a LaBrean age deposit in Wilkin Quarry near Panaca, Nevada, was submitted for pollen and macrofloral analysis to Identify plants growing In the area.
POLLEN, PHYTOLlTH, AND MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS OF A SAMPLE FROM EAST AGANA BAY, GUAM (2006)
A single sediment sample from the beach at East Agana Bay in Guam was collected and examined for evidence of pollen and phytoliths. A bulk sample was submitted to recover organics for an AMS radiocarbon date. The project area is one of the last undeveloped land plots fronting the beach, and, as expected, archaeological excavations yielded evidence of both Latte Phase and Pre-Latte Phase cultures. The sediment sample submitted for pollen and phytolith analysis was collected from a black,...
