Abstract

Late Pleistocene Lake Bonneville is a worldclass
repository of paleoclimate proxies and
data. The lake has been the subject of active
research since the days of G. K. Gilbert in the
19th century. This talk will focus on Lake
Bonneville research conducted recently by
Jewell in collaboration with Jack Oviatt
(emeritus, Kansas State University), Harry Jol
(University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire), Ron
Bruhn (emeritus, University of Utah), and
various graduate students. The past six years
have seen advances as well as some
disappointments in understanding the nature of
the transgressive phase of the lake and the
utility of shorelines as long term tectonic
barometers of the Wasatch fault. Future work
will focus on the Pleistocene/Holocene
transition for which evidence from shorelines
and other geomorphic features is sketchy and
ambiguous but critical for understanding a
major climate transition.
