... ABSTRACT Loess mantles upland summits across much of the Driftless Area of southwestern Wisconsin and its origin and paleoenvironmental significance has been a focus of research since the nineteenth century. Although the Driftless Area was ice free through the many glaciations of the Quaternary...

... ABSTRACT The study of Holocene paleohydrology and paleofloods represents one of James C. Knox’s most enduring contributions to our understanding of the geology and physical geography of the Driftless Area. His work on these subjects resulted in over 20 journal articles, refereed book chapters...

... and silt particles and have been incorporated into the downstream fluvial systems. The temporal coincidence of lead-zinc mining and active aggradation of many fluvial systems in the Driftless Area has resulted in these “legacy sediments” being preserved in overbank fluvial deposits throughout the Lead-Zinc...

...F. T. THWAITES Abstract The pre-Wisconsin or older terraces of the Driftless Area of Wisconsin are formed of much weathered and much eroded glacial outwash and nonglacial stream deposits, most of which lie on rock benches and some of which are nearly 200 feet above the present streams...

.... A driftless area in Calhoun and southern Pike counties marks the eastern border of the Kansan drift from the Keewatin field and the western border of the Illinoian drift from the Labrador field. North of this driftless area the Kansan drift border runs underneath the Illinoian, and its position from this area...

... losses, whereas lobes to the east that encountered shallower water were less affected by calving. The Driftless Area of Wisconsin may thus owe its existence, at least in part, to the presence of Lake Superior. Our results suggest that morainal-bank evolution should be treated in ice-sheet models...

The iodine content of a group of wild and cultivated plant species grown in glaciated areas of Wisconsin and nearby states is not significantly different from that of a comparable group grown in driftless areas of the same region. Plants grown on soils derived from carbonate rocks are similar...

COLEMAN Abstract Introduction The Labrador ice-sheet did not cover the whole of eastern America north of New York, since the Torngat region, in northeastern Labrador, and the Shickshock Mountains, in Gaspe, escaped and remained as driftless areas. On the other hand, in places the ice-sheet...
