G.K. Gilbert studied the Bonneville basin years ago and his findings have largely stood the test of time: The Provo shoreline, the most prominent geomorphic feature of Lake Bonneville, reflects threshold-stabilized overflow of the lake after the Bonneville flood and before a drier climate caused the lake to shrink.

Lake Bonneville, the most recent larger lake, formed the most striking of these beaches, deltas, spits, and wave-cut cliffs that are as high as a thousand feet above the present Great Salt Lake. Because the basin of Great Salt Lake has no outlet, water leaves only through evaporation.

It marks the last gasp of the Bonneville Lake cycle and the beginning of the story of Great Salt Lake. Lake Bonneville is a very young geologic feature, with its age measured in thousands of years rather than in millions or billions of years as are most of the geologic features in Utah.

But it is very important. About this book. Lake Bonneville: A Scientific Update showcases new information and interpretations about this important lake in the North American Great Basin, presenting a relatively complete summary of the evolving scientific ideas about the Pleistocene lake.

Most of the territory it covered was in present-day Utah, though parts of the lake extended into present-day Idaho and Nevada. After the Lake Bonneville flood, the Great Basin gradually became warmer and drier.

Lake Bonneville began to shrink due to increased evaporation. Today’s Great Salt Lake is a large remnant of Lake Bonneville, and occupies the lowest depression in the Great Basin.

The size, shape, and location of this depression have been controlled by Basin. Title. Lake Bonneville / Related Titles. Series: Monographs of the United States Geological Survey ; v. Gilbert, Grove Karl, Type. Book Material. Gilbert’s reports on Lake Bonneville are, like his Henry Mountains report, classic contributions to geology, but the two studies are very different.

The Henry Mountains study involved only 2 months of field work, and the report was completed and published within months after completion of the field work. Light presents the work as a two-way book: one half is devoted to the dry Lake Bonneville, and when flipped over, the other, arid Lake Lahontan.

The book's full-page bleeds are bound in such a way that one can easily dive into the pictures, giving one an exhilarating sense, akin to flying over the region close to.

Lake Bonneville, prehistoric lake, formed ab years ago (late in the Pleistocene Epoch), that at high water covered an estima square miles (52, square km), embracing much of what is now the western half of Utah and parts of Nevada and Idaho in the United States.
