Short summary
The modern hypersaline Great Salt Lake shows an extended modern and ancient microbial sedimentary system. This study on aerial images and field observations discusses the non-random distribution patterns of microbial deposits along linear alignments following isobaths, polygonal geometry or straight alignments along a topographic drop-off. This particular distribution of microbial deposits brings further insights to the reconstruction of paleoenvironments and paleoclimatic changes.
