Summary

A total of five soil samples from along the Pecos River in eastern New Mexico were

floated to recover organic fragments suitable for radiocarbon analysis. These samples were

recovered from a late Holocene terrace adjacent to the Pecos River immediately downstream of

Sumner Dam near Santa Rosa, New Mexico. Botanic components and detrital charcoal were

identified, and potentially radiocarbon datable material was separated.
