This data release provides radiocarbon data for burned plant material collected from deposits following two wildfires in southern California. For the 2020 Bobcat Fire we collected deposits in five stream channels within the Pallett Creek drainage in 2021. For the 2013 Grand Fire near Frazier Mountain, we sampled from two shallow pits excavated into alluvium deposited in 2014. The types of taxa present at each sample location were identified and radiocarbon samples were selected based on the types of material present. This report should be used as the supplementary materials for any publication(s) that uses the radiocarbon dates or taxa identification reported herein.
