We estimated the age and sedimentation rate of bottom sediments in Cheko Lake located in southern Evenkia, in the territory of Tunguska Nature Reserve, near the supposed epicenter of the so-called 1908 Tunguska Event. The vertical distributions of 137Cs and 210Pb activity and visually counted varves in the core of lake bottom sediments indicate that Cheko Lake is significantly older than the 1908 Tunguska Event; therefore, the lake basin cannot be a crater or a trace of the explosion as was… 
Traces of the Tunguska Event (1908) in Sediments of Zapovednoe Lake Based on SR–XRF Data
An anomalous layer enriched with chemical elements indicating the presence of terrigenous matter was discovered in the sediment core of Zapovednoe Lake located 60 km from the epicenter of the
Long-Chain Alkenones in Saline Meromictic Lakes of the North Minusinsk Depression (Southern Siberia): First Knowledge and Possible Correlation with Water-Level Dynamics
Long-chain alkenones (LCAs)—lipides produced by some microalgae of the Haptophyta group in seas and continental water bodies—are promising paleomarkers of climate changes because they are
The atmospheric fragmentation of the 1908 Tunguska Cosmic Body: reconsidering the possibility of a ground impact
The 1908 June 30 Tunguska Event (TE) is one of the best studied cases of cosmic body impacting the Earth with global effects. However, still today, significant doubts are casted on the different

Lake Cheko and the Tunguska Event: impact or non‐impact?
Several lines of evidence were presented in Gasperini et al. [Terra Nova (2007), vol. 19, pp. 245–251] suggesting that Lake Cheko, a small lake close to the alleged epicentre of the 1908 Tunguska
Chemical Composition of the Uranium Tail Storages at Kadji-Sai (Southern Shore of Issyk-Kul Lake, Kyrgyzstan)
In 1996, an abandoned uranium mine was re-discovered in the Djilubulak ephemeral stream valley on the southern shore of Issyk-Kul - one of the largest and most pristine lakes in the world. The tail
A possible impact crater for the 1908 Tunguska Event
The so‐called ‘Tunguska Event’ refers to a major explosion that occurred on 30 June 1908 in the Tunguska region of Siberia, causing the destruction of over 2000 km2 of taiga, globally detected
