In 2005, core 1Fs were drilled from the deposition-center of the southwestern basin of lake. The upper 5 m of core is composed mainly of dark gray to light brown lacustrine silty clay or clay with horizontal bedding. The 5-9 m section of core consist of gray and grayish-yellow silty clay with silt layers. The lower part of core consist of light brown and gray silty clay, loess-like silt and fine sand layers. δDwax of n-alkane in upper 10 m of 1F core were anlysed and the data of 0-5 m have reported in Liu et al. (2017). This dataset contains the complete δDwax of n-alkane C31 above 10 m of 1F core and sample depth. The age model was based on 14C chronology reported in An et al. (2012). Reference 1.
