Summary

A core was collected from sediments in a seasonally dry glacial kettle lake or pond near

Bismark, North Dakota. These sediments are anticipated to represent most of the Holocene

and possibly the latest Pleistocene. Pollen samples were collected at close intervals to provide

the best possible evaluation of the paleoenvironment. In addition, eight radiocarbon ages were

obtained on humates, since there was no charcoal observed in the core, to anchor the pollen

record. Dates range from 4900 to 34450 RCYBP.
