Summary

A total of 15 bulk sediment samples from the Quinault River drainage basin in the western

Olympic Peninsula, Washington, were floated to recover organic fragments suitable for radiocarbon

analysis. Samples were recovered from floodplain deposits on terraces inset into a glacial moraine

that dams Lake Quinault, as well as from sand and silt beds within alluvial fan deposits from Finley

Creek, a major tributary in this section of the Quinault River. Botanic components and detrital

charcoal were identified, and potentially radiocarbon datable material was separated.
