Document title

Measurement, correlation, and mapping of glacial Lake Algonquin shorelines in northern Michigan

Abstract

The aim of this article is to produce accurate lake-level curves for Main Lake Algonquin and several post-Main lakes, evaluate/correlate the post-Main lakes in light of new data on shoreline elevations, and accurately map the areas inundated by the various lake levels. The AA. use differential global positioning system (DGPS) technology to measure elevations of unquestionable Algonquin shorelines at wave-cut bluffs. They then correlate their shoreline data to previous estimates of post-Main Algonquin features in an attempt to clarify the sequence of post-Algonquin lakes
