Abstract

Evidence based on topographic quadrangles, aerial photographs, soil maps, and extensive fieldwork indicates that the Inner and Outer Port Huron moraines in the northwestern part of Michigan's Southern Peninsula represent a mega-assemblage of related glaciofluvial formations marking successive marginally stagnant glacial termini. Small disintegration ridges associated with major heads of outwash probably record the transition to warmer conditions with final deglaciation. Such relationships agree with interpretations accounting for large amounts of superglacial drift marginal to the Laurentide ice sheet
