I put together a Google Earth file with a few interesting things tagged. Click Here to Download the file..
Glacial Lake Agassiz Beaches: Beaches near the GF Air Base. Beaches basically account for all natural linear features running southeast to northwest in the Red River Valley. In Canada the beach direction may be variable. It should be noted that there are often multiple beaches in the Northern Red River Valley that correlate to a single beach in the Southern Valley. This has been attributed to rapid uplift taking place as the glacial ice receded. Presentation I did for a class on the topic. Presentation I did for class on the Beaches of Glacial Lake Agassiz (Worth a look)
If you want to know more try
I had to make a digital copy of this so I might as well make it available. I don’t think it is copyrighted. Let me know if you think it is.
Southern Spillway: One of several catastrophic outflow points of Lake Agassiz. Note: The outflow points change overtime depending on the level of the lake and ice conditions farther north. & Large Scale braded stream cause by the one of the lake Agassiz floods.
Other Points of interest:
Pembina Escarpment: The Pembina Escarpment marks the edges of the prehistoric Red River Valley (pre glaciation) Note: Try to have your Eye alt around 20000 ft. To my knowledge there is no documentation on the joints in the Pierre formation in this region. (I looked) It could make a really good senior project for someone at UND or NDSU.
Logical Devils Lake Outlet Locations: I lived in the Devils Lake area so I still keep track of the area.
