Join Dr. Elmo Rawling, from the Wisconsin Geologic and Natural History Survey, as he discusses how the lake level has fluctuated dramatically in the Michigan/Huron basin for thousands of years. Research conducted at Whitefish Dunes and Newport State Parks utilized ground penetrating radar, LiDAR and optical dating to establish how lake-level changes impact beach and sand dune formation in Door County.
