Major elements ([A1.sub.2][O.sub.3], [K.sub.2]o/[Na.sub.2]O, [CIA.sub.(molar)], CIA) and sedimentary facies analyses indicate that oil shale in [J.sub.2][sh.sup.1] was deposited in a limnic environment in a climate varying from warm-humid to hot-humid, whereas oil shale in [J.sub.2][sh.sup.2] was deposited in a semi-deep and deep lake environment in a stable warm-humid climate.
Although this stratification is stable at present, the gas accumulation it makes possible has apparently led to limnic eruptions in the distant past.

The results showed: 1) Greater than 50% mortality of Ceriodaphnia dubia after 24 h exposure to 100% sample water; 2) The prolific plant life found was Limna minuta, which is an indicator of eutrophic conditions among limnic ecosystems; 3) Larger organisms were scarce in the pond while microorganisms were abundant; and 4) The concentration of fecal coliforms per 100 mL of pond water exceeded EPA standards for recreational water.
