Text Description:
Only horizon collected from the Kinzarof Lagoon bluff that does not show distinct boundaries with the silt. In outcrop, it was described as being a 16-cm thick yellow-brown dense clay with brown stringers in the upper 5 cm. BSE imaging of the sample (Fig. 11 d in Carson 1998) showed small, although recognizable, glass shards intermixed with clay, lithic fragments, and mineral crystals. Reworked.
