The paper is part of the variability study component of the Paleoecological Investigation of Recent Lake Acidification I (PIRLA I) Project. The study was designed to assess the variability in diatom and chrysophyte assemblages within a lake, and the variability associated with enumerating inferring pH from these assemblages. The results presented in the paper serve as a partial basis for assessing the uncertainty associated with the diatom and chrysophyte analyses of all PIRLA I study lakes. A major conclusion of the study is that a single sediment core can adequately represent the overall trends that have occurred in a lake.
