Radiocarbon analysis of halophilic microbial lipids from an Australian salt lake

Bray, P. Sargent; Jones, Claudia M.; Fallon, Stewart; Brocks, Jochen; George, Simon


Assigning accurate dates to hypersaline sediments opens important terrestrial records of local and regional paleoecologies and paleoclimatology. However, as of yet no conventional method of dating hypersaline systems has been widely adopted. Biomarker, mineralogical, and radiocarbon analyses of sediments and organic extracts from a shallow (13. cm) core from a hypersaline playa, Lake Tyrrell, southeastern Australia, produce a coherent age-depth curve beginning with modern microbial mats and...[Show more]
