Optical dating sediments
Map of northern Xinjiang showing the major water systems, including the Manas Lake west of the Gurbantunggut Desert.
Once this sediment is deposited and subsequently buried, it is removed from light and is exposed to low levels of natural radiation in the surrounding sediment.
When comparing sedimentary environments at different times from different sites in this study and previous studies, it is suggested that a small amount of uplift of the northwestern side of Manas Lake relative to the southeastern side may have occurred in the last 80 ka.
Manas Lake is a closed lake basin located in the western part of the Junggar Basin in northern Xinjiang Province, northwestern China. 2), and its current lake bed is at an elevation of 244 m a.s.l.
