Project Abstract
INTERIM REPORT: This project was delayed because of the administrative delay in funding and also due to the COVID-19 pandemic causing project delays.

The bulk of the effort is to occur in March and April 2022 when Alana Williams will be traveling to the pollen laboratory at UC Davis and to the DRILL luminescence dating laboratory at U. Nevada-Reno. She will work in the laboratories and coordinate with the staff.
Billing is expected in spring 2022 for the analyses.
