Summary
Abstract: Chemical and physical data from three cores (OL84B, OL90-2, OL90-1) taken from
Owens Lake by Steve Lund of the University of Southern California.

Oxygen isotope and total inorganic carbon values of cored sediments from the
Owens Lake basin, California, indicate that Owens Lake overflowed most of the
time between 52,500 and 12,500 carbon-14 (14C) years before present (B.P.).
