Dates were obtained using conventional radiometric analysis on bulk peat samples from near the position of a visible tephra. Dates were calibrated using OxCal version 3.10 (Bronk Ramsey, 2005). The age of tephras that were not directly dated was estimated by linear interpolation from the calibrated date.||Sterling Mire kettle peatland on the Kenai Lowlands, Alaska. Cores were extracted from the deepest section of the sites using a Russian-pattern peat corer with a 50 mm bore (Aaby and Digerfeldt, 1986). Coordinates provided as degrees/minutes and converted to decimal degrees. Datum not specified, assumed to be NAD83.||5 mm thick zone of particles with a bimodal size distribution centred on 35 and 490 mm.
