The MGS portion of the project was specifically designed to help guide the selection and interpretation of lake-cores planned by the Science Museum of Minnesota that were intended to serve as reference sites (reference lakes) to document recent and historic erosion rates in the agricultural areas of the Middle Minnesota watershed. A second goal was to better predict the texture of surface sediment for input to a watershed model being used to address turbidity issues by the MPCA.
The draft map accompanying this report is provided for the purposes of visualization of the extent of the units sampled and to convey the broad distribution of glacial sediment and landform associations. It should not be construed as a final, detailed map consistent with MGS publication standards because it represents only the initial steps of surficial map creation followed by reconnaissance-level field-checking.
