Golden_Island (Golden Island) * Latitude: 20.518830 * Longitude: 96.924670 * Lake water depth: 1.5 m * Location: Lake Inle, Shan State, Myanmar * Method/Device: Auger (AUG)
The site is recent fill on the eastern bank of the lake near Myaungyogyi village. The core was excavated with a bucket auger through recent fill. Once the floating island (Chum yo) was penetrated, a D section auger was used to collect the soft lake sediment, commencing approx 150 cm below present water level.
