X-ray diffraction analyses of till samples collected from multi-till exposures along the Lake Michigan shoreline in Michigan and Wisconsin show a systematic variation in the clay-mineral composition of successive till sheets.

A significant decrease in the relative amount of 10Â clay, however, occurs within the post–Mackinaw Interstade (late Woodfordian) Ozaukee-Haven and Two Rivers tills. These changes in clay-mineral composition are apparently...
