Abstract The sedimentary record of Effingham Inlet, British Columbia, Canada (Appendix 1) is contained in: a 40.9 m giant (Calypso) piston core (MD02-2494; 4904.28'N/12509.55'W) raised from 120 m water depth in the inner basin, in June 2002, during the 2002 MONA (Marges Ouest Nord Americaines) campaign aboard the French ship RV Mariane Dufresne, and in four Geological Survey of Canada freeze cores (TUL99B04, VEC007-FC01, VEC007-FC02 and VEC007-FC03) which contain the surface sediments and were also raised from 120 m water depth in the inner basin in October, 1999, and April, 2005, from the CCGS John P. Tully, and the CCGS Vector . The piston core MD02-2494, spans from 14,000 14C yr BP (16,700 cal yr BP) to about nine centuries before present, and the freeze cores represent from AD 1992 to 850 y BP.
