Lake Agassiz was an enormous glacial lake that covered a large chunk of the North American landscape betw and 8, years ago, at the end of the last ice age. Like its namesake - Louis Agassiz (), the father of glacial geology - glacial Lake Agassiz's influence was felt far and wide. Evidence of glacial Lake Agassiz occurs over an area of roughlysquare miles, an area five times the size of the state of North Dakota, although Glacial Lake Agassiz.

Lake Agassiz, largest of the ice-margin lakes that once covered what are now parts of Manitoba, Ontario, and Saskatchewan in Canada and North Dakota and Minnesota in the United States.

It was present in the Pleistocene Epoch (approximately million to 11, years ago) during the last two phases of the Wisconsin glacial age, when the Laurentide Ice Glacial Lake Agassiz.

A recent Ghosts of Minnesota post “A Minnesota beach where there is no water” by Troy Larson, reminded me of this place and the influence the immense glacial Lake Agassiz on the landscape of the upper sections of the Plains, a lake formed at the end of the last ice.

This book has a nice picture on the cover but the content is a disappointment. It contains an introductory chapter on the remains of Lake Agassiz but has no maps or diagrams to illuminate what the (rather dense) text is saying.2/5(1).

Lake Agassiz was the largest glacial lake in North America. It was formed 11 years ago in front of the northeastwardly retreating Laurentide Ice Sheet, which acted as a dam.

The lake covered much of Manitoba, northwestern Ontario, parts of eastern Saskatchewan and North Dakota, and northwestern Minnesota. Book details the now-disappeared Lake Agassiz 90% of Lake Agassiz was in Canada, the glacial lake ended up being named by an American, Warren Upham, after an American hero, Louis Agassiz.

Lake Agassiz was first hypothesized by American geologist William H. Keating in during an expedition in the Great Lakes region. It wasn’t formally noticed by the scientific community untilwhen geologist Warren Upham published, “The Glacial File Size: 2MB.
