Summary
Abstract: This data set contains data files of various parameters collected in
Elk Lake, Minnesota. The lake has generated considerable interest due
to its 10,000 year record of varved sediments. Extensive analyses of
the sediments have been completed, including measurements of varve
thickness, pollen, diatoms, geochemistry, isotopes, mineralogy, and
physical properties. The data have been collected and ... View entire text
