Document title

The composite nature of the Provo level of Lake Bonneville, Great Basin, Western North America

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Deposits of a transgressive-phase Lake Bonneville stillstand or oscillation are found just below the elevation of the regressive-phase Provo shoreline at numerous exposures throughout the Bonneville basin. Existence of these sub-Provo shoreline deposits provides a new explanation for the massive size of Provo deposits and erosional landforms, which can no longer be explained by a long stillstand at the Provo shoreline. Provo coastal landforms are large because they are superimposed on sub-Provo landforms. Results also help to clarify divergent interpretations regarding the relative age of the Provo shoreline
