... analyses of more than 200 samples collected from moraines, till plains, and multi-till exposures 2 to 60 km inland suggest that Saugatuck till at the lakeshore is equivalent to till in the Lake Border Valparaiso, and Sturgis-Kalamazoo morainic systems, whereas Ganges till can be traced in the subsurface...

... literature. The moraines decline sequentially in elevation from the Kalamazoo moraine in the east to the Kendall, Valparaiso, and Lake Border moraines to the west. Immediately north of the village of Otsego, the Kendall moraine (Fig. 2 ) consists of low- to moderate-relief hummocky topography, including...

... of clay-sized particles. This is apparent from X-ray diffractograms of basally oriented, magnesium-saturated, and glycerol-solvated specimens. Thirty-five till samples from the converging Kalamazoo (Saginaw lobe) and Mississinewa (Huron-Erie lobe) moraines and their interlobate tract have 7-Å/10-Å peak...

... and deltas, as it advanced eastward to the Kalamazoo moraine. The fine texture and fabric of the lacustrine sediment package restricted the flow of subglacial water and caused abrupt local increases of pore-water pressure and concomitant coupling and decoupling of the bed-substrate interface. Advancing ice...

... and to design an effective bioremediation strategy. The sediments at the site were deposited as glaciofluvial outwash downstream of the Kalamazoo Moraine, and consist mainly of fine to medium sands with interbedded gravels and silts. A series of 18-meter-long continuous cores was collected in the vicinity...

... is distal margin of the Kalamazoo moraine of the Saginaw Lobe. Kehew et al. (2012a) divided the Saginaw Lobe terrain in southern Michigan into four land systems, i.e., areas of similar sediment-landform assemblages. Land system 1 ( Fig. 3 ), the southernmost, extends from a large, post-LGM moraine...
