Comparison of pollen-slide and sieving methods in lacustrine charcoal analyses for local and regional fire history


Comparison of pollen-slide and sieving methods in lacustrine charcoal analyses for local and regional fire history

The charcoal content from laminated lake sediments in Quebec, Canada, was estimated from pollen slides and by a sieving method. The resulting charcoal series were compared to estimate the suitability of these two methods to provide a local or regional fire history. The replication of five different charcoal series from the sieving method shows that this method is suitable for fire-history reconstruction.
