Lake Lahontan was a large endorheic Pleistocene lake of modern northwestern Nevada that extended into northeastern California and southern area of the former lake is a large portion of the Great Basin that borders the Sacramento River watershed to the west.

The lake derives its name from Louis-Armand de Lom d'Arce de Lahontan, Baron de Lahontan, a French soldier. Geological History of Lake Lahontan: A Quaternary Lake of Northwestern Nevada [Anonymous] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.

Lake Bonneville lay almost exclusively in western Utah, and only a small area in eastern Nevada, while Lake Lahontan was mainly restricted to western Nevada.

Lake Lahontan reached a maximum depth of over feet and covered over 8, square miles, with vast stretches of open water separated by mountain ranges. The Pleistocene (/ ˈ p l aɪ s. t ə ˌ s iː n,-t oʊ-/ PLYSE-tə-seen, -⁠toh- often colloquially referred to as the Ice Age) is the geological epoch that lasted from about 2, to 11, years ago, spanning the world's most recent period of repeated end of the Pleistocene corresponds with the end of the last glacial period and also with the end of the Paleolithic age.

Lakes have existed on and off immediately east of the Sierra Nevada since at least late Pliocene time, as shown by deformed lake beds of Pliocene and early Pleistocene age in the Waucobi Hills (Bachman, ) and Coso Range (Schultz, ), and basal deposits in Searles Lake (Smith et al., ), while Owens Lake has Introduction to the Pleistocene Geology of Northwestern Lake Lahontan for at least the pastyr (Smith and Bischoff, ).

At its maximum extent during the last glacial cycle, Lake Franklin covered km 2 of the Ruby Valley of northeastern Nevada, making it one of the largest pluvial lakes between Lakes Bonneville and Lahontan. Mapping of shorelines, surveying of topographic profiles, and radiocarbon dating of gastropod shells were employed to reconstruct the latest Pleistocene history of the lake.

During the Pliocene to middle Pleistocene, pluvial lakes in the western Great Basin repeatedly rose to levels much higher than those of the well-documented late Pleistocene pluvial lakes, and some presently isolated basins were connected.

Sedimentologic, geomorphic, and chronologic evidence at sites shown on the map indicates that Lakes Lahontan and Columbus-Rennie were as much as 70 m higher.

The products of Morrison‘s studies are contained in the U.S. Geological Survey Professional PaperLake Lahontan: Geology of Southern Carson Desert, Nevada, which stands as a seminal study on late Pleistocene Lake Lahontan in western Nevada and provides the fundamental basis for all subsequent studies of Lake Lahontan geology.

Several recent GeoNotes on lakes and their islands mentioned only currently existing lakes. If one goes back into the Pleistocene epoch, however, the situation was very different.

18, years ago, some of the world’s largest lakes were located in the Great Basin of western North America. Today, only remnants exist, although several, most notably Utah’s Great Salt Lake, are still. Lake Lahontan receded abruptly from its most recent highstand at ∼13,–13, 14 C yr B.P. (Adams and Wesnousky,Benson and Thompson,Benson et al.,Thompson et al., ), leaving behind smaller subbasin lakes in the western Great Basin of North America ().Histories of the latest Pleistocene and Holocene post-Lahontan high lake levels are important for studies of.

INTRODUCTION. The field work on which this report is based was begun byin company with Mr. Leffingwell, in the summer of The work was undertaken privately, in connection with studies at the University of Chicago.

Late Pleistocene lake areas are shown for all pluvial lakes within the map area that extend into Nevada or are part of the Lahontan drainage basin. However, larger, pre-late Pleistocene areas are shown only for lake basins which have been visited in the field by the author. The extent of older pluvial lakes in unvisited lake basins is unknown.

Pleistocene fluvial landforms and riparian ecosystems in central California responded to climate changes in the Sierra Nevada, yet the glacial history of the western Sierra remains largely unknown.

Three glacial stages in the northwestern Sierra Nevada are doc-umented by field mapping and cosmogenic radionuclide surface-exposure (CRSE) ages. aboutkm2, covers most of the northwestern Great Basin (Fig. Although comparable to Lake Bonneville in overall length and width, Lake Lahontan always had a much smaller lake area, maximum mean depth, and volume.

The shorelines of ancient Lake Bonneville show very prominently along the surrounding hills. In northwest Nevada, Lake Lahontan lay in a series of interconnected valleys east of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. It was the size of Lake Erie.

Pyramid Lake, Walker Lake, and several other saline lakes are all that is left of once mighty Lake Lahontan. With no outlet, it became an inland sea. During the Pleistocene epoch, (Ice Age) Lake Lahontan covered most of what was to become the Great Basin Desert, which reached through 8, square miles of Western and Northwestern Nevada and part of California.

Its maximum depth was around feet. The climate during this time was wetter and much cooler. Introduction Pleistocene is the period in Earth's history that we commonly refer to as the Ice Age. Through much of this period, the Earth's northern and southern regions were covered by kilometer thick glaciers.

It is important to recognize that the Pleistocene was a series of real ice ages, separated by relatively short interglacial periods. The two-sites are mi apart; the Sevier Lake Site is in the Lake Bonneville regime, whereas the Massacre Lake Site is within the confines of the Lake Lahontan area; the lakes coexisted during Pleistocene times.

Tools found at Sevier Lake were made from quartzite, while tools from Massacre Lake were made from obsidian. Manix Lake peoples failed to make use of the entire periphery of the ancient lake as did the Playa and later groups.

The Manix Lake lithic industry sites are lo­ cated where they are, above feet along the northwestern edge of Manix Lake, because that is where the alluvial fan with the raw stone is found.
