Here we present precisely dated multiple proxy records at a varved
lake sediment core in the center of the Tibetan Empire.
Studies of varved
clays in West Virginia by Janssen and McCoy (1953) placed the minimum duration of Lake Tight at 6,500 years.
In western Estonia, lithology is one of the most important triggers of landslides as they occur mostly in glaciolacustrine varved
clay (Kohv et al.

clays from Plecewice near Sochaczew (central Poland).
Rich, glacial-lacustrine deposits of varved
clays occur, particularly in low-lying valleys.
Trace fossils from Late Pleistocene varved

For example, by comparing meteorological data with chironomid assemblages found in varved

Many naturally-occurring soils, such as flocculated clays, varved
silts or sands, are typically deposited via sedimentation over long periods.
Kuksa mine clay (dark brown, greasy, varved
limnoglacial (lgIIIgr), with bright light sandy inter-layers) mine was selected for a detailed investigation (Tables 1 and 2) (Petrikaitis 2007).
