Record #101591:

Glacial Lake Wisconsin / Lee Clayton, John W. Attig.

Title: Glacial Lake Wisconsin / Lee Clayton, John W. Attig.
Author(s): Clayton, Lee.
Attig, John W.
Date: 1989.
Publisher: Boulder, CO: Geological Society of America
Abstract: Discusses recent findings and relates to understanding of Late Pleistocene history of western Great Lakes region. Geologic setting and basic geometric framework of lake are described. Evidence for three of highest shorelines is evaluated and offshore sediment described, followed by speculation of catastrophic floods during final drainage. Last sections deal with relationships between lake and history of permafrost of area, evidence for chronology of various lake events, and relationship between tilting of Earth's crust during glaciation in this area and in Great Lakes area.
