Summary
Abstract: Latitude and longitude: 48 00'29"N, 101 31'49"W
Water depth at coring site: 863 cm.

Juvenile shells (instars A-1, A-2) of Candona rawsoni (a benthic ostracode
species with broad salinity tolerance) were used for analysis because
juveniles molt predominantly during mid-summer, thus minimizing the effect of
intra-annual variation in hydrochemistry. The trace-element analysis was
carried out with ICP-MS (inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometer) methods
on the acid residue remaining after the stable isotope analysis. For detail
and references on the analytical method, see Yu and Ito (1999) Geology paper.
