Holocene sediments from three deep boreholes from Long Point, a 35-km-long sandy foreland on the Canadian side of eastern Lake Erie, display a consistent coarsening-upward trend from sheltered-water clays and silts to well-sorted shoreface sands. This trend persists in spite of the documented record of lake-level rise, due primarily to postglacial isostatic rebound of the Niagara River outlet. To resolve this contradiction within the context of shoreline evolutionary trends in eastern Lake Erie, sediment data from the boreholes are analyzed in combination with data from other sources. The analysis suggests that the sedimentary sequence is linked to the history...
