This paper introduces a flexible sediment classification scheme for modern and ancient lake sediments employed at the Limnological Research Center, University of Minnesota. Our classification scheme emphasizes the macroscopic structure and microscopic components of the sedimentary matrix (clastic, chemical and biological) and can be applied to a wide range of lacustrine settings. Such a classification scheme is necessary to i) facilitate communication and collaboration between the highly… 
Sedimentary stratigraphy of Lake Chalco (Central Mexico) during its formative stages
Lake Chalco lies south of the Basin of Mexico and has been the subject of studies related to Late Quaternary climate variability. In 2016, the International Continental Scientific Drilling Program
The recent sedimentation history of Aqualate Mere (central England): assessing the potential for lake restoration
As part of English Nature’s Lakes Flagship Project to address adverse environmental impacts on selected, important lakes, a proposal has been made to dredge Aqualate Mere. The site has experienced
Paleoclimatic reconstruction based upon a sediment core from the Kalya region , Lake Tanganyika , East Africa . Students :
Lacustrine sediments from piston cores are used to reconstruct past climate variability (Talbot and Allen, 1996). For the present study, a sediment core was analyzed from Lake Tanganyika, located in
Neolithic Lakeshore Settlements in Switzerland: New Insights on Site Formation Processes from Micromorphology
Lakeside settlements can be regarded as a special type of archaeological site, as, thanks to their location near the shoreline, or even in the lake, various kinds of organic remains have been
Reconstructing Paleoflood Occurrence and Magnitude from Lake Sediments
Lake sediments are a valuable archive to document past flood occurrence and magnitude, and their evolution over centuries to millennia. This information has the potential to greatly improve current
Palaeolimnology of Lake Hess (Patagonia, Argentina): multi-proxy analyses of short sediment cores
In contrast with the extensive palaeolimnological studies carried out in North America and Europe, relatively few studies have described the anthropogenic and/or climate impacts in Patagonian lakes.
