Interrelationships among late Holocene climate, the dynamics of coastal dunes and sedimentation in adjacent small lakes along coasts of the upper Great Lakes have been studied for over a decade. Nonetheless, many questions remain as to relationships between climate variability and dune activity. The study site is Oxbow Lake, near Saugatuck, Michigan, which formed as an artificial cutoff of the Kalamazoo River in 1906. Stratigraphic control of the infilled western end of the lake is from ground penetrating radar, and lake sediment from Livingstone and Glew cores with age control from 210Pb/137Cs/7Be analysis.
