Postglacial landscape evolution of northeastern lower Michigan, interpreted from soils and sediments

Abstract

In this study, centered on northeastern (NE) lower Michigan, the AA. provide new evidence from sediments, soils, and landforms that supports the hypothesis that a longstanding paleolake or series of paleolakes once covered this landscape to levels much higher than previously recognized. The AA. use digital, spatial data (county-level soil maps and elevation data), and a GIS to better understand the spatial distribution of various postglacial sedimentary environments. In so doing, they compile a new landform map for the region, derived from a combination of fieldwork and analysis of these spatial data
