Summary

A total of 14 samples were examined to recover organic fragments suitable for

radiocarbon analysis. These samples were recovered from three late Holocene terraces

adjacent to the Carson River immediately downstream of Lahontan Dam in western Nevada.

Botanic components and detrital charcoal were identified, and potentially radiocarbon datable

material was separated. Six samples were selected for AMS radiocarbon analysis.
