Late Wisconsinan Glacial History of Northeastern Wisconsin and Western Upper Michigan ByWarren L. Peterson Abstract Four distinct late Wisconsinan advances of glacial ice are recognized in north-central Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

The Wisconsin Glacial Episode, also called the Wisconsin glaciation, was the most recent glacial period of the North American ice sheet complex. This advance included the Cordilleran Ice Sheet, which nucleated in the northern North American Cordillera; the Innuitian ice sheet, which extended across the Canadian Arctic Archipelago; the Greenland ice sheet; and the massive Laurentide Ice Sheet.

This chapter discusses the glacial history of Michigan, U.S.A. At its maximum, the Laurentide Ice Sheet in the Great Lakes region, comprised the Green Bay, Lake Michigan, Saginaw and Erie lobes, extended south of Michigan into central Ohio, Northwestern Indiana, and North-Eastern by: 6.

The history of Late Wisconsinan glaciation in southwestern Manitoba has been established by identifying and correlating ice-laid lithostratigraphic units in the subsurface.

We propose a chronology of late Wisconsinan glacial fluctuations in middle North America, from Alberta to Wisconsin, based on radiocarbon dates derived solely from wood.

Previous chronologies of the southwestern margin of the North American Continental Ice Sheet have depended to a considerable degree on radiocarbon dates from fine-grained organic sediment.

Ice advanced out of the basins of Lakes Superior and Michigan and stabilized during the St. Croix-Hancock phase, the most extensive late Wisconsin Author: Christopher L Hill.

Glacial Lake Wisconsin was a prehistoric proglacial lake that existed from approximat to 14, years ago, at the end of the last ice age, in the central part of present-day Wisconsin in the United States. Formation and demise. Before the last glacier, a somewhat different Wisconsin River drained the north-central part of the state, running around the east end of the Baraboo Hills.

The Salvation Army of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan cares for those hurting and in need while teaching the love of God. During late Wisconsin time the major glacial advance in the western part of the region investigated reached its farthest extent south in at least three pulses: 21, 19, yrs ago.

The oscillating retreats were interrupted by three documented. Clayton () correlates this 9, 14C yr B.P. advance with the Marquette Phase in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and estimates that the glacier margin wasted out of Wisconsin for the last time by 9, 14C yr B.P.

The Arnott moraine is essentially one of the only exposures of the pre-late Wisconsin glaciation in the state.

As the Green Bay lobe moved westward to the central part of the state it covered most of the older pre-late Wisconsin sediments except for the Arnott moraine and a few areas in the south central part of the state.[3] Sources.

The history of late glacial runoff from the southern Laurentide ice sheet in Indiana is one of long periods of normal'' meltwater flow punctuated by extreme flows. Meltwater flow down the Wabash began about 26 ka when ice of the Lake Michigan lobe entered the headwaters of its northern and western tributaries.

The physical landscape and surface geology of the Chicago area are the legacy of the most recent of several continental glaciations. Although glaciers invaded the Chicago area repeatedly during the Quaternary period, the span of geologic time from about million years ago to the present, the youngest, the Wisconsin-episode glacier, melted back into the Lake Michigan basin ab.

Fittingly, the most recent period of the Ice Age, which ended ab years ago, is known as the Wisconsin Glaciation. Near the end of the Wisconsin Glaciation, a series of ridges formed between two immense lobes of glacial ice in what is now southeastern Wisconsin.

These ridges are miles long. the Late Wisconsinan ice. These prior glaciations followed very similar paths and patterns to the Late Wisconsinan, including ice flow direction and deposition patterns (Braun b, 11) Older glacial limits are primarily parallel to that of the Late Wisconsinan, and ice flowed over the region in the same general southwesterly direction each time.
