This field guide examines the evidence for multiple readvances of the Superior lobe, as well as the morphological and sediment record of glacial lakes in the western Lake Superior basin. During each readvance of the Superior lobe, ice went a shorter distance, reached a lower elevation, and laid down a finer-grained till due to incorporation of proglacial lake sediment. There are three distinct tills, which are correlated to three readvance phases: the St. Croix/Automba, Split Rock, and Nickerson. A red clay typically caps the stratigraphy at lower elevations in the basin. This clay may be a fourth till associated...
