3. Sediment chronology

4. Tephra:

I just read an article about the life of a famous paleolimnologist and was amazed about the observation that a thick tephra layer can be much heavier than fluffy topmost lake sediment, thus sink down through the fluff and be instantly buried at some depth below the sediment/water interface. In theory, this could have happened also in Bien Ho, at least we cannot rule this out yet.
