Science for Everyone: Lake Level Fluctuation, Beach Development, and Dune Formation in Door County over the Last 5000 Years.
September 16, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
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.
