SAMPLE INFO : 97EC9A
Sample ID:97EC9A
Station ID:97EC9
Latitude:55.135
Longitude:-163.234
Datum:NAD83
Date Sampled:0000-00-00
Sample Type 1:Tephra Fall
Text Description:
The top portion of the exposure of 97EC9 consisted of coarse black sand from the active dune system on the Bering Sea shore. Underlying this was 3 cm of white mineral crystals. Directly beneath this was sample A, a 15-cm layer of mixed black to reddish yellow coarse pumiceous sand. Immediately underlying A is an organic layer, sampled for radiocarbon dating. Coarse grey sand and cobbles, interpreted as Late Wisconsin diamicton, formed the
base of the exposure.
