By Harriet Cornachione, GSA Science Communication Intern – Ph.D. Candidate in Geology Utah State University Indiana geologists locate the southern boundary of the Laurentide ice sheet Building on the efforts of his predecessors and using new technologies to date sediments, geologist Henry Loope and his team at the Indiana Geological and Water Survey (IGS) mapped the Indiana extent of a vast glacier called the Laurentide ice sheet. At its greatest size – called the Last Glacial Maximum – the immense sheet of ice covered much of Canada and the northern United States (Figure 1). In some places the ice was about 4 km (2.5 miles) thick! Subject to episodes of advance and retreat through the Quaternary Period about 2.5 million years ago, the ice mass began its final retreat about 20,000 years ago. Today only a small remnant of the Laurentide Ice Sheet remains – the Barnes Cap in the Canadian Arctic. Studying the history of past climates, especially the glacial (cold) and interglacial (warm...
