      In the middle Willis ). The diatom record has been widely Holocene, the water level of Lake Ontario was still used to reconstruct local limnological variables too low for a wetland to exist at Cootes Paradise (e.g., Brugam et al. ; St Jacques et al. ).

Lake Ontario indicators measure the health of the ecosystem • Critical pollutant indicators show progress • Overall, contaminant levels in young fish, herring gull eggs, and Lake trout continue to decline • LaMP objectives for bird populations, bald eagle, mink and otter achieved.

This weekly forecast of Lake Ontario lake-wide average water levels and outflows is produced by the Great Lakes – St. Lawrence Regulation Office of Environment and Climate Change Canada as part of its responsibilities to provide engineering and technical support to the International Lake Ontario – St.

Lake levels continued to rise steadily above the Thousand Islands sill through mid-to-late Holocene time culminating at the level of modern Lake Ontario.

The early and middle Holocene lake-level changes are supported by temperature and precipitation trends derived from pollen-climate transfer functions applied to Roblin Lake on the north side of Lake by:   A new water-level history for Lake Ontario basin: evidence for a climate-driven early Holocene lowstand T.

Previous coring and palynological investigations at Rice Lake have identified the existence of two low water level phases: a maximum lowstand prior to 11 ka BP, following the drainage of Lake Iroquois (Sonnenburg et al., ) and a mid-Holocene event at ∼6–4 ka BP that is recorded by a major erosional hiatus in Holocene sediments (Yu and McAndrews, ).Cited by: 5.

the main basin of Lake Huron, and Late Lake Hough in the Georgian Bay basin. The lowest lowstand was the late Lake Hough phase in the Georgian Bay basin (*8, to 8, cal BP, highlighted with stipple).

Lake level fell *30 m below the sills in the North Bay outlet, approximately 5 m below the level of late Lake Stanley in the main basin of.

Great Lakes water levels and related data Information on Great Lakes water levels is available from several agencies in the United States and Canada.

This Web page contains links to a number of official Web sites containing Great Lakes water level and related data. A water depth at the core site of 5 m at cal yr B.P. would give a lake level of about m asl ( m asl [modern datum] − m [core length] + 5 m [water depth]), but rates of isostatic rebound must be incorporated to generate more accurate values for absolute paleo-lake by: ILOSLRB Daily Levels.

Lake Ontario shoreline flooding: Water level stable, threat diminished say regulators. Water levels in Lake Ontario are expected to remain well below record levels.

From the late s until we had a very effective water level management plan for Lake Ontario. The new “IJC Plan ” favours high water levels and ignores damage from flooding.

Why not reinstate the lake level controls that served us well for over 50 years. The result is a long-term change in lake level with respect to shoreline features that differs from site to site.

The reconstructed water-level history of Lake Michigan-Huron over the past 4, years shows three major high phases from 2, to 3, 1, to 2, and 0 to years ago. Great Lakes Water Level Observations.

NOAA water level observations are available at specific locations, as described on the Monitoring Network page or as a lake-wide average. These lake-wide averages are based on a select set of U.S.

and Canadian station data as determined by the Coordinating Committee. The observation data shown below is from each lake's master gauge. The extreme high and low lake levels measured in recorded lake-level history have altered storage by as much as 31 cubic miles in Lake Michigan-Huron and as little as 9 cubic miles in Lake Ontario.

Diversions of water into and out of the lakes are very small compared to the total volume of water stored in the lakes. level, while Lake St. Clair is predicted to be an inch higher, and Lakes Erie and Ontario are expected to be 1 inch below their May 29 th expected level.

The Lake Ontario Operational Forecast System (LOOFS) is a NOAA project aimed at providing improved predictions of water levels, currents and water temperatures in Lake Ontario to the user communities. Similar systems are operational in the other 4 Great Lakes as well. Internal architecture and ages of 71 beach ridges in the Tahquamenon Bay embayment along the southeastern shore of Lake Superior on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan were studied to generate a late Holocene relative lake-level curve.

Establishing a long-term framework is important to examine the context of historic events and help predict potential future changes critical for effective water.June Sun: Mon: Tue: Wed: Thu: Fri: Sat: 1: 2: ~ Paleo Lake Levels — The Last Four-Thousand Years ~ HOLOCENE LAKE LEVELS AND CLIMATE, LAKES WINNIPEG, ERIE, AND ONTARIO C.F.M.
