Reconstructed discharge of the Truckee River was made considering losses to evaporation in all upstream reservoirs and corrected for diversion from the Derby Dam to the Newlands area. These data were never previously published.

General Comment: In most cases an age model based on 14C analyses is not included with the datasets although ones were created for the original publications. Given the general problems with 14C ages in the lakes of the Great Basin, age models based on paleomagnetic secular variation (PSV) are much preferred. However the original 14C data are included below so that the reader may create their own age models. Most of the calibrated ages in this database have been done more recently than the times of original publication so they may not exactly match the dates in the publications
