Alwynne B. Beaudoin - Lake File


This listing consists of palaeoenvironmental sites within the SCAPE study area (western interior Canada and northern US) and adjacent areas, identified as INSCAPE and OUTSCAPE respectively. Not all sites are lakes; some are peatlands, wetlands, fens, or bogs. Many sites have yielded pollen data, but the listing also includes sites where plant macroremains, diatoms, ostracodes, and algal pigments have been investigated. The listing focusses on sites dealing with the postglacial interval, roughly 15,000 yr BP to present.

The references included for each site are the main ones with primary data or detailed discussions. Some of these sites have been widely cited in palaeoenvironmental discussions; these secondary references are not included here unless they add some significant new dimension to the site's interpretation. For the same reason, only a few review articles are included here. Finally, some sites are mentioned only in abstract but when more widely accessible refereed papers are available, these sources are cited in preference. Although most of these references were compiled during the SCAPE project (2000-2005), the list has been kept updated and contains a significant proportion of more recent references.

The INSCAPE area covers the southern portions of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, and extends into western Ontario, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and much of Minnesota. It is roughly bounded north and south by 54°N and 45°N, and west and east by 114°W and 93°W. An interim annotated bibliography of all the sites and references in pdf form can be downloaded here. That document compiled all references as of May 1 2004; this on-line listing in The Lake File is more up-to-date because it includes many references and sites added subsequently.

The OUTSCAPE area includes parts of British Columbia, the Northwest Territories, and northwestern Ontario, and the northern parts (north of 54°N) of Alberta, Saskatachewan, and Manitoba. It also includes sites from the northern USA, including parts of Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, South Dakota, and Minnesota.

The locational information for the sites is, in most cases, only approximate. It is often difficult to determine site locations from the original publications. Where possible, site locations are given in decimal degrees latitude and longitude. The values are rounded and given to two decimal places. You may view a mapped summary showing the approximate location of the sites; clicking on any site's location brings up a page of bibliographic information.

Acknowledgements: Assembly of much of the information and database comprising The Lake File was made possible by funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) through an MCRI Grant Number 412-99-1000 (2000-2005).
