Charcoal records from lake sediments may show changes in fire frequency over thousands of years, but such records are ambiguous with regard to the actual locations of fires. Using a comparison of fire dates from an 1800-year lake sediment record from the west coast of Vancouver Island (British Columbia, Canada) and dates of last fire from 38 sites in the same watershed using tree-ring and soil-charcoal 14C dates, we estimated the source area that contributes to charcoal peaks and determined the… CONTINUE READING
