Abstract: We introduce a large cardinal property which is consistent with $L$ and show that for every superatomic Boolean algebra $B$ and every cardinal $\lambda $ with the large cardinal property, if tightness$^{+}(B)\geq \lambda ^{+}$, then depth$(B)\geq \lambda $. This improves a theorem of Dow and Monk.
