Sterling_Mire60.51666667-150.5166667Payne, Richard 1230 14C; 4762; Age is approximate. 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.1560--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. 4 mm thick layer with particle size peaks at 35 and 175 mm.
