We are grateful to Lucas Countyís Auditorís Office for sharing GIS data, including its LIDAR files. We thank the Nature Conservancy and John Jaeger (Toledo Metroparks) for permission to conduct geophysical measurements on land under their management.
Most field work and preliminary interpretations were completed as part of the Glacial Stratigraphy and Geophysics graduate class. Students Henry Loope, Amber Lahners, Deanna Bobak, Brittany Fussel and Kelly Weyer contributed to the field work, and Jason Witter located and obtained for us the LIDAR data file.
