Summit Lake was cored on October 4, 1999 by Rick Nordin and Bruce Carmichael. The core was retrieved using a modified K-B corer (internal diameter ~ 6.35 cm) from the deep basin. On shore the core was sectioned onto 0.5-cm intervals into 120-ml plastic containers. Every other sample was shipped on ice to Queen's University where they were stored in our coldroom at 4* C. The containers were weighed to determine the total wet weight of sediment prior to subsampling for 210Pb analyses. Twenty intervals (every 2 cm) were subsampled for diatom and sixteen intervals for 210Pb analysis. Prepared samples for 210Pb analysis (see below) were sent to MYCORE Ltd.
