Young, Benjamin M.
MetadataShow full item record
The Lower Chippewa River Valley (LCRV) is similar to many large river systems throughout the United States. Little is know about its geomorphic history. The purpose of this research is to determine if Hornblende Etching (HE) analysis, a relative dating method for soils, is a reliable method to determine the age of fluvial landforms in LCRV.
