Abstract

The objectives of this study were to determine : if and where lithologic discontinuities are present in the late Pleistocene Northport drumlins of NW lower Michigan, and the sedimentary processes responsible for the discontinuities. Determining the presence of lithologic discontinuities was achieved through field observations and laboratory analysis. Lithologic discontinuities with varying strengths of expression were found in all upland soils. Upland soils typically have a sedimentologic cap dominated by fine sands at the surface with dense, more gravelly till beneath. This occurrence suggests that upland soils in the Northport drumlin field formed from subaqueously reworked glacial till
