In three cores from an acidic lake in the Adirondack State Park of New York, iron cycling accounted for diagenetic enrichment of up to 14% of sediment dry mass. Dating biases from iron diagenesis reached as high as 57% and biases to calculated sediment accumulation rates ranged up to approximately 15%. -from Authors
