Reconstructing the bay-side geomorphic evolution of a freshwater baymouth bar in response to lake level change using three dimensional (3D) ground-penetrating radar (GPR) data

Kremmin, Todd (2019-11)
Situated at the southwestern tip of Lake Superior, Minnesota and Wisconsin Points' form a 16-kilometer baymouth bar between Duluth, Minnesota and Superior, Wisconsin, providing the breakwater for the largest and farthest ...

A tunnel speleothem based stable-isotope record of Atlantic Multi-Decadal Oscillation forcing of precipitation in the Midlands, United Kingdom

Shull, Carolyn (2019-08)
Cave speleothems are an established source of preserved data used in paleo-environmental reconstruction, as climate and land use information can be recorded in the carbon and oxygen isotopes. Speleothems in the tunnels of ...

Isotopic Signatures of Precipitation and Streams along the North Shore of Lake Superior

Stoll, Kinzey (2019-06)
Lake Superior is the largest of the Great Lakes. Its size impacts precipitation along the North and South Shores, but the magnitude of its effects on the North Shore are unknown. Using stable isotopes of δ2H and δ18O to ...

Myth as True History: Medicine Wheels and Landmarks as Boundary Markers of the Lakota World

Burley, Paul D (2016)
This investigation examines physical, spatial and temporal characteristics of Native American medicine wheels located on the Northern Great Plains of the Unites States. Direct evidence for date and purpose of construction ...

A 10,000-year lake-sediment based reconstruction of precipitation isotope values in the Canadian Rocky Mountains and implications for past changes in North American hydroclimate

Wagner, Zachary (2019-01)
Hydroclimate change in the Canadian Rocky Mountains is an important area of research, as demand for water resources in the Great Plains has been continuously increasing in recent years. The population of Alberta has one ...
