|Eastern Mojave Vegetation||Walker Lake, Mineral County, Nevada.|
See also: Sand Mountain.
Large land-locked lake in west-central Nevada.
Adams (2007) study of Walker Lake sedimentary environments presented a detailed overview of the different sedimentary environments and stratigraphic sequences observed in outcrops along the margins of paleolake basins and showed how these can be used to reconstruct past lake-level fluctuations, using the Walker Lake basin as an example. This paper presented a new late Holocene lake-level curve based on radiocarbon ages of different sedimentary environments exposed in outcrops along the lower Walker River. Late Holocene sedimentary environments along the lower Walker River include fluvial, deltaic, beach, and offshore settings that migrated laterally over a distance of ~20 km as lake levels fluctuated through a vertical range of ~55 m.
