Lacustrine turbidites as indicators of Holocene storminess and climate: Lake Tahoe, California and Nevada
Sediment cores from Lake Tahoe permit the discrimination of turbidites initiated by seismic-induced debris flows from those generated by severe storms and associated hyperpycnal currents over the…
Paleolimnological Reconstruction of Historical Atmospheric Lead and Mercury Deposition at Lake Tahoe, California-Nevada
Evidence from this study suggests the existence of a significant modern source for atmospheric Hg deposition in the Sierra Nevada, on the continental west coast of the United States. Concentrations...

Abstract: In efforts to control the degradation of water quality in Lake Tahoe, public agencies have monitored surface water discharge and concentrations of nitrogen, phosphorus, and suspended…
Water quality response to the Angora Fire, Lake Tahoe, California
The Angora Fire (summer of 2007) was the largest and most severe wildfire in recent history within the Lake Tahoe basin of the Sierra Nevada. To determine the watershed response and to assess the…
