Abstract

The diatom assessment was carried out in conjunction with pollen and lithostratigraphical assessments. At this assessment stage the primary aim of the diatom evaluation was to determine, for selected samples: whether or not diatoms are present or absent; the quality of preservation of diatoms and; and to list the main species present and their ecological, particularly salinity, optima. An additional aim was to evaluate the potential use of diatom analysis in further investigations of these sediments and in particular the usefulness of diatom analysis in, qualitatively or quantitatively, reconstructing the salinity conditions under which the sediments formed. Using the preliminary conclusions of this investigation it is hoped that the diatom assessment will assist in focusing on key questions within the site stratigraphy re. salinity and sea-level during different periods of the location's development.
