    The next stop on the tour through Michigan’s glacial history lies in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula about a five-hour drive from Sleeping Bear Dunes. From Traverse City, going north, you cross the 8-kilometer-long Mackinac Bridge, which serves as a symbolic boundary between Lake Michigan and Lake Huron.   Radiocarbon dates from the Lake Huron basin and the St. Clair Delta to the south are summarized by Larsen () and Lewis and Anderson (). These provide context for the Sanilac dates and the early Holocene history of the southern Huron Basin.

Lake Michigan–Huron (also Huron–Michigan) is the combined waters of Lake Michigan and Lake Huron, which are joined through the 5-mile-wide ( km), fathom-deep ( ft; 37 m), open-water Straits of and Michigan are hydrologically a single lake because the flow of water through the straits keeps their water levels in : Great Lakes.

Lake Huron / ˈ h j ʊ r ɒ n, ˈ h j ʊ Lake Huron. book ən / is one of the five Great Lakes of North America. Hydrologically, it comprises the easterly portion of Lake Michigan–Huron, having the same surface elevation as its westerly counterpart, to which it is connected by the 5-mile-wide ( km), fathom-deep ( ft; 37 m) Straits of is shared on the north and east by the Canadian Group: Great Lakes.

The last time that glacial ice completely filled the Lake Huron basin was during the Port Huron glacial advance which occurred ab years BP. Early Lake Algonquin ( m asl), bounded to the north by glacial ice, was formed after a rapid glacial retreat from the southern part of the Lake Huron basin ab years by: Quaternary geology fieldwork was conducted at a reconnaissance-scale in the Kaskattama highland area to document the Quaternary stratigraphy and till composition.

The Quaternary glaciation, also known as the Pleistocene glaciation, is an alternating series of glacial and interglacial periods during the Quaternary period that began Ma (million years ago), and is ongoing. Although geologists describe the entire time period as an "ice age", in popular culture the term "ice age" is usually associated with just the most recent glacial period during the.

Bigsby visited Mackinac Island and the north shore of Lake Huron in and in During Henry Rowe Schoolcraft also visited the area and described the rocks in a book published in Twenty years later the rocks of the Straits area were described by Michigan's first State Geologist, Douglass Houghton.

Lake Michigan is one of the five Great Lakes of North America. It is the second-largest of the Great Lakes by volume (1, cu mi (4, km 3)) and the third-largest by surface area (22, sq mi (58, km 2)), after Lake Superior and Lake Huron (and is slightly smaller than the U.S. state of West Virginia).To the east, its basin is conjoined with that of Lake Huron through the narrow Straits.

Recorded lake-level histories for each lake show some similarities. Periods of higher lake levels generally occurred in the lates, the lates, the mids, and from the earlys to mids. Pronounced low lake levels occurred in the mids, the mids and the mids, and returned again in Quaternary evolution of the Great Lakes Geological Association of Canada, - Science - pages.

Lake Huron is the third largest of the lakes by volume, with cubic miles of water. Lake Huron is hydrologically inseparable from Lake Michigan, joined by the wide Straits of Mackinac.

The Huron lakeshore extends 3, miles, and is characterized by shallow, sandy beaches and the rocky shores of Georgian Bay. Lake Huron receives its largest flows from both Lake Superior via St.

Mary's River and Lake Michigan through the Straits of Mackinaw. It has a surface area of 23, sq. miles. The water from Lake Superior drops an elevation of 24 feet as it flows into St.

Mary's River. There are also 1, tributaries, of which are from Michigan. The moraine complex that marks the Port Huron readvance in the Lake Huron basin nearly everywhere has a double crest, interpreted to represent two advances separated by minor ice margin retreat. On the Michigan side of the Huron lobe area, no distinction has been made between the tills related to the two advances, but in Ontario, Canada, two.

When the Lake Michigan lobe of the Laurentide Ice Sheet occupied the lake basin, the Straits of Mackinac were blocked by ice. Glacial Lake Chicago was dammed by the glacier (hence the term: glacial lake) and the outlet was located on the lowest point of the drainage divide (Leverett ).
