Summary

Eight bulk soil samples from the Bradbury Dam slurry wall trench in the bed

of the Santa Ynez River, southern California, were floated to recover macrofloral

remains, especially potentially radiocarbon datable material. The sample from

Station 5+10 spoil also was examined for pollen and phytoliths. The Santa Ynez

River is believed to have experienced periodic episodes of swamping due to local

tectonic activity that drops the level of the river bed and slows the flow of the

river. In addition to the recovery of charcoal and other radiocarbon datable

material, pollen, phytolith, and macrofloral analyses will be used to provide

evidence for marshy environments created by the tectonic conditions.
