... sign. To test the Holocene age assumption we dated shorelines from two lake systems, Ngangla Ring Tso and Chabyer Tsaka (Zabuye), using 14 C and U-Th dating of shoreline tufas ( Fig. 1 ; Fig. DR1 and Tables DR1 and DR2 in the Data Repository). Tufas (CaCO 3 ) precipitated on shorelines of closed...

... spectacularly in Ikka Fjord in southwest Greenland as submarine carbonate tufa columns. Here, ikaite is formed as a result of submarine spring water mixing with cold seawater. As ikaite disintegrates at temperatures above 6–7°C, it has been speculated that global warming could endanger this unique habitat...

... to the precipitation of calcium carbonate, or tufa, which can impair drainage and clog filter fabrics, which in turn can lead to premature failure of roads and other infrastructure systems. Tufa precipitation of RCA has been studied in various states, but no studies have been conducted on RCA containing a coarse...

..., or left open. However, detailed macroscopic, microscopic, and geochemical analyses of these features reveal that they are, instead, macrophyte (stem) encrustations that form in standing water. While these features form in a manner similar to paludal tufa, they do not resemble typical tufa deposits (e.g...

... substratum. A critical geological re-interpretation of this area indicates that the Quaternary succession, composed by a relatively thin veneer of terrigenous deposits and by calcareous tufas , is the result of five major stages of drainage reorganization. The data from this study indicate that, similarly...

.... Sedimentation is mainly biogenic with the laying down of thick charophyte-rich tufas interbedded with silty layers in distal areas and palaeosols in proximal areas. These alternations point to four major deposit sequences with lowstand phases. The first two phases are dated at ca. 2426 and 1869 cal B.P...
