Abstract

The surficial deposits, ice movements, and glacial lakes within an area of 34 500 square miles in northeastern Ontario are described. Some of the moraines of the study are tentatively correlated with moraines to the west in the upper peninsula of Michigan, in the Nipigon area, and along the north shore of Lake Superior. The glaciolacustrine deposits and sequence of events in the study area in relation to the glacial features and chronology of the southern Great Lakes basin provide a basis for a partial glacial chronology for the study area. A knowledge of the glacial features of this area further elucidates the integration of movements of two advancing ice lobes, which was observed in northwestern Quebec.
