Holocene lake salinity changes in the Wimmera, southeastern Australia, provide evidence for millennial-scale climate variability

Kemp, Justine; Radke, Lynda; Olley, Jon; Juggins, Steve; De Deckker, Patrick


Palaeosalinity records for groundwater-influenced lakes in the southwest Murray Basin were constructed from an ostracod-based, weighted-averaging transfer function, supplemented with evidence from Campylodiscus clypeus (diatom), charophyte oogonia, Coxiella striata (gastropod), Elphidium sp. (foraminifera), Daphniopsis sp. ephippia (Cladocera), and brine shrimp (Parartemia zietziana) faecal pellets, the δ 18O of ostracods, and >130μm quartz sand counts. The chronology is based on optically...[Show more]
