Abstract

1. Collect an open water and a littoral core from the loch 2. Extrude the cores in the field at 1 cm intervals 3. Describe the cores 4. Measure dry weight and organic matter content of selected levels of the two cores 5. Analyse spheroidal carbonaceous particles in 20 samples of the open water cores to establish sedimentation rates and approximate the chronology. Correlate the open water and littoral cores to provide an approximate chronology for the latter. 6. Analyse diatom assemblages in five samples from selected depths of the open water core 7. Analyse plant macrofossils in five samples from selected depths of the littoral core 8. Produce a summary report of the findings (August 2006).
