Table 1 List of age control points based on the correlation between the event layers and historically recorded floods

From: Mass accumulation rate of detrital materials in Lake Suigetsu as a potential proxy for heavy precipitation: a comparison of the observational precipitation and sedimentary record

  1. Gray shades indicate the pairs used as age-control points. These pairs are consistent with the estimated varve count age for each event layer, except those symbolized as asterisks, which require further constraining
  2. T typhoon, TD tropical depression, B Baiu (rainy season)
  3. *1: Two neighboring event layers in the range of 5 years are compared to two floods which occurred in 1998 and 1999
  4. *2: Based on varve re-counting from E5, age of E6 ranges from 1976 to 1977
  5. *3: Based on varve re-counting from E6, ages of E8 ranges from 1973 to 1976
  6. *4: Two neighboring event layers without varve between the layers are compared to two floods which occurred in 1 year (1972 and 1965)
  7. *5: Based on varve re-counting from E16, age of E14 ranges from 1965 to 1967
  8. *6: Based on varve re-counting from E17, age of E16 ranges from 1958 to 1960
