Three sediment cores from the Bay of Quinte, each about two metres long, were taken in March, 1972. The chronology of the core sediments was established so that stratigraphic parameters could be correlated with historical events. Historical changes in the sediments were defined. Analysis of the fossil chironomid succession demonstrates that man, especially European man, has had, and is having, a profound impact on the Bay of Quinte.
