This area serves as a case study in the connections and conflicts between ongoing geological processes and subsequent patterns of human useages. Alternating drumlin bluffs and baymouth barriers comprise the region of Lake Ontario between Sodus Bay and Oswego.  These bluffs nourish the nearshore and offshore zones […]
