The grain size of lake sediments has been widely used to reconstruct environmental processes. However, the various components of lake sediments are influenced by different factors, and therefore the environmental significance of grain-size variations may be complex. For example, in situ authigenic biological siliceous components cannot be used to indicate variations in hydrodynamic conditions. Here we present a case study of the effects of diatoms on the grain size of the sediments of Lake Kanas...
