EXAMINATION OF SEDIMENTS FROM B. F. SISK DAM, CENTRAL CALIFORNIA FOR POLLEN, PHYTOLITHS, AND DIATOMS TO IDENTIFY PROBABLE AGE OF THE DEPOSITS
Five sediment samples collected from B.F. Sisk Dam in central California, approximately
12 km west of Los Banos, were examined to recover pollen, phytoliths, and diatoms. These
sediments were recovered from the downstream toe of the dam near the former junction of San
Luis and Cottonwood Creeks. These samples are believed to represent the Plio-Pleistocene
Tulare Formation and possibly the Corcoran Clay, one of the uppermost units within the Tulare.
Analysis was conducted in an effort to verify this assumption.
