The 3rd foreign Symposium on Paleolimnology used to be held in the beginning of September 1981 in Finland. After registration on the college of 10ensuu and the hole consultation and welcome reception within the city corridor, the members moved to a lodge at Koli, a hill famed as a landmark and for its panoramic view. the following the lecture consultation, lasting 4 days, came about. Momentarily, the mosaic of the lakeland grew to become seen among the clouds displaying the hill slopes coated by way of mature spruce wooded area and scattered previous birch bushes, a reminder of the final slash-and-burn part a few a hundred thirty years in the past. Altogether a hundred and twenty paleolimnologists participated within the conferences and so much additionally attended one of many post-symposium tours to the Arctic Circle and to South Finland. The lectures lined a variety of paleolimnological topics. the most themes, even if, incorporated present elements within the courting of sediments and the background of eutrophication. The symposium used to be prompt by means of the overseas organizing committee less than the presidency of Professor Edward S. Deevey. different contributors current at Koli have been Dr. Maj-Britt Florin, Dr. Heikki Ignatius, Prof. Heinz Lamer, Prof. Gerbert Martinson and Dr. Magdalena Ralska-lasiewiczowa. additionally they gave course to a dialogue on destiny plans for overseas job in paleolimnology. Later within the autumn, after the tip of the symposium, the partici­ pants despatched detailed due to the secretaries, Mrs. Eija Merilainen, Mrs. Tuula Nylander and Mrs. Anita Toukomaa, for fixing person difficulties in the course of the symposium with soft and quick efficiency.

1 from the sediment. Furthermore, any cycling of l37Cs between the sediment and lake waters will tend to preferentially enrich the upper sediment layers which is very clearly the case in Hidden Lake (Figs. 3 & 4). Conclusion The l37Cs profile in Hidden Lake is believed to be the result of a combination of diffusion, biological concentration from the water and at the surface sediments following sedimentation, and the time lag in sedimentation of catchment material. Diffusion and active uptake by living organisms parallels the processes postulated to explain divergent l37Cs profiles in ombrotrophic peat bogs (Oldfield et al.
