Study of the sediments of Lake Butte des Morts, Wisconsin, and their stratigraphic relationships, has produced a history of lake evolution from the early years of the last deglaciation. Samples of bottom sediment (at the sedimentary interface) were taken from locations selected to represent each environment of deposition in the lake. In the laboratory cores were extruded from the plastic corer liners for analysis and the sediments were divided into eleven types. These sediment types are not intended to represent stratigraphic units though some may exist as a unit and may be conceptually categorized as a rock-stratigraphic unit--e.g.--the red varved clay. The paleolimnological approach provides background information of value in the management of lakes and also adds some detail to the knowledge of local natural history.
