Geologic Guidebook to Ohio State Parks in the Lake Erie region

SKU: GEO013

PRODUCT TYPE: Book

$22.00

by D. Mark Jones

This guidebook to the geology of the Ohio State Parks in the Lake Erie region describes the geological features of state parks to tell key parts of the history of the lake's formation and Ohio's geological history. It is not a traditional geological guidebook in that it does not list stops to be visited in a particular sequence. Instead, users visiting one or more of the parks will find this guide useful to understand the overall geologic context of the park(s) and the surrounding region. Featuring abundant photos and illustrations, Guidebook 24 is organized in four parts.

1. Part I discusses the general geologic background of northern Ohio and the formation of the Paleozoic rocks.

2. Part II summarizes the Quaternary (Ice Age) history of the region and relates the regional geology specifically to the development of Lake Erie.

3. Part III is a brief discussion of Lake Erie's history since modern settlement and the future of the lake.

4. Part IV contains park-specific field guides to the geology of lake-adjacent state parks and nearby lands.
