Abstract: Stage of Lake Michigan-Huron and its post-glacial antecedents has ranged 400 ft and its early north shore has been uplifted by crustal deformation 270 ft above the present shore. Eustatic rise of sea level exceeded 200 ft in the same period. Relatively steady now, these processes continue at a measurable rate. Diversions and degradation of the outlet channel contribute to recession and reliction. Using a time series of pentad stages 1860-1967, the time-recession relation was deduced as a mesograde curve, from which annual departures showed normal distribution and were used to postulate frequency of extreme lake stages.
