C age of a fossil, as a result of the living organism incorporating old carbon, are not appropriate for varve calibration.
These ages will result in a calibration that is too old and often well outside the uncertainties associated with the precision of C measurement.
An additional requirement for accuracy is that the fossil samples do not have a significant lag time associated with their deposition in a lake.
Most plant fossils found in glacial lake sediment are from terrestrial sources.
Bulk sediment samples and samples of aquatic plants or animals such as the carbonate shells of clams, snails, and ostracodes may yield ages that are too old because of how carbon was fixed by the organism and the potential for the incorporation of “old” carbon from a water body.
Many water bodies are not in equilibrium with the atmosphere or have non-atmospheric or recycled sources of carbon in their water columns.

In some cases, errors may become obvious as they are sometimes on the order of 10 kyr or more (Miller and Thompson, 1979).The most reliable ages are from fossils that got their carbon directly from the atmosphere.The true calendar age of a varve sequence can be obtained in areas where varves can be counted back from the present in modern lakes with varve deposition.A varve sequence might also have events in it of known calendar age, such as beds from flood events or volcanic ash layers that have historic records associated with them.
