Morey Associate Leaders: Ken Card Klaus Schulz John S. KJasner Richard W Ojakangas Ameri.   The Great Lakes: The Natural History of a Changing Region, by Wayne Grady, Canadian science writer Wayne Grady has written a great book about the Great Lakes. I do not read much science, but this book taught me a lot while giving me lots of joy. I’d recommend it to anyone planning to spend some time in or around the Great Lakes/5(11).

    The Lower Proterozoic terranes were intruded by Middle Proterozoic plutons and, to the south, the older terranes are covered by large areas of rhyolite and epizonal granite. The granite and rhyolite represent two distinct suites, to Ga and to Ga old.

Medaris, Jr. By analogy with other Proterozoic and Phanerozoic depositional basins, the sedimentary and tectonic history of early Proterozoic rocks of the northern Great Lakes area is tentatively interpreted in terms of the aulacogen model; a corollary of this interpretation is that the aulacogen opened into an ocean lying somewhere to the east, in the area.

The Penokean orogeny (1, to 1, m.y. ago) was a major early Proterozoic tectonic event in central Wisconsin, involving deformation, metamorphism, volcanism, and plutonism. Penokean isoclinal F 1 folding affected both Archean and lower Proterozoic rocks, producing a penetrative axial planar foliation that dips steeply throughout the terrane.

Early Proterozoic iron-rich sediments in the Great Lakes region, in southeast Wyoming and in the Northwest Territories of Canada are interpreted as the earliest deposits of such foreland basins. They are considered to be chemical precipitates from iron-rich sea water.

Geology of the Great Lakes The Great Lakes include Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, Lake Erie, and Lake Ontario on the US-Canadian perimeter. These lakes are the biggest freshwater basin on the planet. They make up for 20 percent of the freshwater bodies on Earth at six quadrillion gallons.

They have an area of 95, square miles with more than 3, flora and fauna species. This book falls somewhere between a science text and a popular science book, probably falling closer to the former. However it is a concisely written textbook that dwells at greatest length on the Pleistocene history of the lakes as it was understood in the early s: 1.
