Abstract

The surficial geology of the Baraboo area is very important because it includes the transition from a glaciated region to the Driftless Area. The eastern portion of this area was glaciated as part of the Green Bay lobe of the ice sheet in this area. The terminal moraine is present and is characterized by sandy till. No valid information that substantiates glacial activity exists west of the city of Baraboo. The Driftless Area includes a site of the earliest Wisconsin habitation.
