EXAMINATION OF SAMPLES FOR RADIOCARBON DATABLE MATERIAL FROM THE MR. PEAT PIT, SOUTH-CENTRAL COLORADO (2005)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Kathryn Puseman.

The Mr. Peat Pit site consists of widespread peat and localized tufa in the latest Pleistocene paleovalley on piedmont east of Rio Grande in south central Colorado. A sample of black-mat type peat and a sample of the overlying spring-mound tufa from the pit initially were floated to recover organic fragments suitable for radiocarbon analysis. Botanic components and detrital charcoal were identified, and potentially radiocarbon datable material was separated. An additional tufa sample and...

RADIOCARBON DATES FOR MARSH DEPOSITS FROM GC 21 AND GC 23, TOLAY CREEK, CALIFORNIA (2010)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Linda Scott Cummings.

Three samples from cores in a marshy area adjacent to Tolay Creek, California, were submitted for radiocarbon dating. Botanic components of the peat and marsh deposits were separated, then submitted for AMS dating. Three radiocarbon dates were obtained.


Recent Applications of Micromorphology to Cultural Resources Management in the Pacific Northwest (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Brandy Rinck.

Solving geoarchaeological questions in a cultural resources management (CRM) context can be difficult due to time and budget constraints. In the Pacific Northwest, however, recent projects have fortunately allowed for some micromorphological analyses. Paul Goldberg has championed micromorphology as a valuable geoarchaeological method over the past three decades. The micromorphological analysis of shell middens, peat deposits, and alluvial sediment in and around the Seattle, WA area has elevated...
