Abstract

Analysis of the fraction of Late Wisconsin deposits less than 2 mm in diameter has shown a wide range in textural composition of glacial tills. Massive lake sediments were high in clay content and contained less sand than the till of the same textural class. Glaciofluvial and eolian deposits were loamy to sandy and sandy, respectively.
