• Mid Holocene lowland forest

• Nipissing transgression in the northern Lake Huron Basin

This forest bed is located at the bottom of Thunder Bay in ten meters of water. Larch stumps are dated ca. 7850-8020 Cal Yrs BP. The site provides evidence on shoreline position of Lake Huron during the onset of the Nipissing transgression in the northern Lake Huron Basin.


• Older Dryas (Two Creekan type locality) woodland in the Lake Huron area

• Pre-Clovis mastodon hunters


• Younger Dryas wetlands from Calumet County, WI • Late Holocene charcoal record of amplified aridity ca. AD 1290 Abundant deposition of plant macrofossils was found in pond sediment and peat exposed at a farm-pond on the Schneider Farm, Calumet Co., east-central Wisconsin (Photo). Stratigraphy of a 15-m section yields the Holocene history of this area starting from a basal till unit dated ca. 14,000 years ago (Chilton Member till). Over 180 specimens of wood were collected in 2005 along with charcoal from the 2 m topsoil gyttja underlying brown clay.


• Mid Holocene drowned forest in Lake Huron

• Nipissing transgression in the southern Lake Huron Basin

This is another a Mid Holocene drowned forest bed in the southern Lake Huron located a few miles offshore of Lexington Township, MI. We have only one specimen analyzed from the site sampled with the help of deep-water divers led by Captain Luke Clyburn. It was a pine stump with 98 tree rings. Most likely, this site is similar to the Mid Holocene drown forest at Sanilac site (TBDH/SFDH) located in the vicinity.
