At Mangaia, for example, the sediment deposition histories of the 21 cores raised in eight drainages (Ellison 1994) do not conform to Barrau's schema in two aspects: (1) non-conformity between deposition rates and the timing of human actions as inferred from dated changes in palynomorph frequencies and (2) asynchrony among the cores with respect to signs of prehistoric human actions such as onset of the deposition of clay over peat, thought to represent forest disturbance.
