Given the general problems with 14C ages in the lakes of the Great Basin, age models based on paleomagnetic secular variation (PSV) are much preferred. However the original 14C data are included below so that the reader may create their own age models. Most of the calibrated ages in this data base have been done more recently than the times of original publication so they may not exactly match the dates in the publications.
