Nor is their rarity surprising, when we remember how large a proportion of the bones of tertiary mammals have been discovered either in caves or in lacustrine deposits; and that not a cave or true lacustrine bed is known belonging to the age of our secondary or palaeozoic formations.
Biotic content, lack of ikaite, and proximity to pluvial lake systems strongly correlate the deposit's age with the numerous lacustrine deposits that occur in the region (Fig.

Seismites in lacustrine deposits are divided into different classes and their trigger mechanisms discussed by Sims [6], Alfaro et al.
Parker also highlighted conditions that produce aquitards with the highest integrity (either depositional or postdepositional processes), including thick lacustrine deposits, and deposits having high plasticity or that have not been exposed to the atmosphere or overridden by glaciers, etc.
However, it is also common that extensive lacustrine deposits represented by intercalated tuffs, siltstones, diatomites and sandstones occur in such geological setting (Brathwaite, 2003, 2006).
Lakes in Michigan's western Upper Peninsula (UP) region are low in calcium because of underlying igneous bedrock (Dorr and Eschman, 1970; Rapp et al., 1987), although calcium concentrations of lakes in the remainder of the state are generally high because they are situated in lacustrine deposits or limestone that contain calcium carbonate (Dorr and Eschman, 1970).
The pans have previously been documented to contain unconsolidated lacustrine deposits in some basins (Mees 1999a, 2001).
Trace fossils from marginal lacustrine deposits of the Cretaceous Jinju Formation, southern coast of Korea.
The sediments forming fining-upward cycles, consist of Pennsylvanian coal-bearing alluvial sequences (Valin, 1976; Nemec and Cmiel, 1979), alluvial-plain to lacustrine deposits of the Lower Rotliegend associated with a strong volcanic activity (Mastalerz and Wojewoda, 1989; Blecha, 1992; Mastalerz and Nehyba, 1997; Awdankiewicz, 1998, 1999) and the Upper Rotliegend braided- plain to alluvial plain--alluvial fan deposits at the top (Tasler et al., 1979; Sliwinski, 1980).
