Paleolimnology of Lake Manitoba : the Lithostratigraphic Evidence

  title={Paleolimnology of Lake Manitoba : the Lithostratigraphic Evidence},
  author={William M. Last}
Lake Manitoba, the largest lake in the prairie region of North America, is one of the most intensively studied lacustrine basins in western Canada. New AMS 14C dating, together with mineralogical, geochemical, and lithostratigraphic analyses of the 14-m-thick, offshore sediment sequence, document a complex Holocene history in which water levels and limnological conditions were controlled by the interplay of changing climate, variable river and groundwater inflow, and differential isostatic… CONTINUE READING
