CHARCOAL IDENTIFICATION AND EXAMINATION OF BULK SOIL SAMPLES FOR POTENTIAL RADIOCARBON DATABLE MATERIAL FROM ALPINE, UTAH COUNTY, UTAH (2014)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Peter Kováčik.

The Alpine project site is located near the city of Alpine in Utah County, Utah. This site represents an undisturbed fault scarp. Eighteen soil samples and nine charcoal samples, collected from a paleoseismic trench opened across the Wasatch Fault, were submitted to recover and identify material appropriate for AMS radiocarbon age determination.


EXAMINATION OF BULK SOIL AND DETRITAL CHARCOAL, AND AMS RADIOCARBON AGE DETERMINATION OF MATERIALS FROM THE MINTO, DENALI, AND CASTLE MOUNTAIN FAULTS AND THE NORTHERN FOOTHILLS THRUST, ALASKA (2015)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Peter Kováčik.

Six bulk soil samples from paleoseismic trenches across the Minto Fault, Denali Fault, and Castle Mountain Fault in Alaska were floated to recover and identify organic fragments suitable for radiocarbon age determination. In addition one macrofloral sample and eight detrital charcoal samples from a trench across the Northern Foothills Thrust (Alaska) also were submitted for identification. Botanic components and charcoal fragments were identified and potentially radiocarbon datable material was...


Kuril Biocomplexity Project Archive (NSF 0508109)
PROJECT Ben Fitzhugh.

A broadly interdisciplinary, international team investigated the complex web of cultural, ecological, geological, and climate systems in the Kuril Islands. The Kurils provide uniquely laboratory-like conditions for this study, permitting examination of past changes in local climates and ecosystems along an island chain. The islands are situated along a latitudinal gradient extending from temperate Hokkaido Island (north of Japan) to subarctic Kamchatka Peninsula of Russia. Evidence of human...


POLLEN, PHYTOLITH, MACROFLORAL, AND CHARCOAL ANALYSES IN THE JEWETT MINE PROJECT AREA, TEXAS (1990)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Linda Scott Cummings.

Fossil pollen, phytoliths, macrofloral remains, and charcoal from archeological and geological sites at the Jewett Mine, Texas are analyzed in this appendix. Pollen analysis provides an overview of regional vegetation and hence paleoenvironments for this area. Pollen columns were collected at an alluvial geological site in the Buffalo Creek floodplain and at an archeological site, 41LN106, in the Lambs Creek drainage for this reconstruction. Companion phytolith samples were collected from the...

Preliminary report on the volcanic history and tephrochronology of the Kuril Archipelago of relevance to human exposure to natural hazards in prehistory and archaeological site preservation


REPORT ON THE 2008-2009 WORK WITHIN THE FRAMES OF THE KURILE BIOCOMPLEXITY PROJECT (2009)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Vera Ponomarev.

Report on geological stratigraphy and associated data on tephra/volcanic events, paleotsunami deposits and other events of relevance to understanding geological hazards, archaeological preservation/visibility, and chronology in the Kuril Islands.
