THE MOTION OF SEDIMENT ALONG THE SOUTH SHORE OF LAKE ERIE

Howard J. Pincus

Abstract


Much of Lake Erie' s southern shoreline displays fairly uniform properties with respect to shore processes. However, detailed studies of selected stripe of shore areas often reveal characteristics which are so distinctive that problems of control require special attention to local characteristics. The purpose of this paper is to present some generalizations and some detailed comments on the motion of sediment along the south shore of Lake Erie, to outline the results of some detailed studies of small areas, and to evaluate the types of evidence used in such studies.
