Summary

A total of 29 samples from six sites along the lower Kern River near Lake Isabella, California, and six samples from two sites along the upper Kern River near Camp Nelson, California, were examined to recover organic fragments suitable for radiocarbon age determination. These samples were recovered from either fine-grained, sandy flood deposits or from weathering profiles developed in granitic grus on strath terraces cut into the bedrock in seven soil pits and a natural exposure. Botanic components and detrital charcoal were identified, and potentially radiocarbon datable material was separated. A total of ten samples were submitted for radiocarbon age determination.
