Late Quaternary variations in the level of paleo-Lake Malheur, eastern Oregon

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The present Malheur Lake system, which includes Malheur, Harney, and Mud Lakes, contains one of the largest freshwater marsh habitats in the United States. Although the lake typically is no more than 3 m deep, it can experience very dynamic water-level fluctuations and spatial variation. Beginning ca. 5000 yr B.P., based on shells in the Malheur Lake dune islands, the Malheur Lake system's environmental history is marked by fluctuating water levels, a pattern apparently characterizing the remainder of Holocene time
