A combination of both water chemistry and sedimentological information was used to investigate the carbonate-producing mechanism in Littlefield Lake, a small lake located in Isabella County, central Michigan. Data on temperature, dissolved oxygen, pH, calcium carbonate (CaCO3) saturation, alkalinity, calcium, and magnesium were obtained on a monthly basis over a 13-month period, with each parameter determined at 1m intervals over a depth range of 20m. The loss of dissolved carbon dioxide (CO2… 
Water and sediment chemistry of Lake Pumayum Co, South Tibet, China: implications for interpreting sediment carbonate
A combination of water and sediment chemistry was used to investigate carbonate production and preservation in Lake Pumayum Co (altitude 5,030 m a.s.l.), south Tibet, China. We compared the chemical
Littlefield Lake, Michigan: carbonate budget of Holocene sedimentation in a temperate-region lacustrine system
Littlefield Lake is in a late stage of marl lake evolution characterized by reduced rates of carbonate precipitation. Long and short term carbonate budgets show that the volume of calcite in the lake
A multi-proxy reconstruction of paleolimnology and paleoclimatic variability using authigenic lake carbonates from Cleland Lake, British Columbia
In small closed-basin lakes in semi-arid regions, variations in precipitation/evaporation (P/E) balance affect the physical, biological, and chemical composition of the lake water and sediment. This
Influence of climate change and uplift on Colorado Plateau paleotemperatures from carbonate clumped isotope thermometry
The elevation history of Earth's surface is key to understanding the geodynamic processes responsible for the rise of plateaus. We investigate the timing of Colorado Plateau uplift by estimating
Late Holocene change in climate and atmospheric circulation inferred from geochemical records at Kepler Lake, south-central Alaska
Climate records during the last millennium are essential in placing recent anthropogenic-induced climate change into the context of natural climatic variability. However, detailed records are still
ATMOSPHERIC THERMODYNAMICS OF OXYGEN AND HYDROGEN ISOTOPE-BASED ESTIMATES OF ELEVATION FROM OROGRAPHIC PRECIPITATION
The quantitative estimation of paleoaltitude has become an increasing focus of Earth scientists because surface elevation provides constraints on the geodynamic mechanisms operating in mountain

Distribution, production and role of aquatic macrophytes in a southern Michigan marl lake
TLDR
The phenomenon of perennial biomass levels throughout the year is believed to be much more common than previously suspected and has iikely resulted from adaptations of submersed macrophytes to ameliorated conditions of water and temperatures relative to the terrestrial situation in winter.
