The Anoka Sand Plain is generally considered an outwash or lake plain (Wright, 1972; Patterson, 1992; Meyer and Patterson, 1997). However, much of the area was subsequently modified by eolian processes forming dunes and possibly sand sheets.

Alluvial Fan

FAN

AF

The morphologic transition between Alluvial Fan and Colluvial Slope can be gradational. In general, Alluvial Fan includes fan-shaped forms of mappable size. Smaller fans not practical to differentiate at the 1:24,000 scale of mapping, whether alluvial or colluvial, are included in the Colluvial Slope unit. Where multiple Alluvial Fans have coalesced, no attempt is made to differentiated individual fans.

Colluvial Slope

COLLUV

C

The morphologic transition between Alluvial Fan and Colluvial Slope can be gradational. In general, Colluvial Slope includes various forms of slopes dominated by sheetflood depositional processes as well as those dominated by slumps and other slope failures. Smaller fans not practical to differentiate at the 1:24,000 scale of mapping, whether alluvial or colluvial, are included in the Colluvial Slope unit. Areas of Colluvial Slope often are present but are too narrow to be reasonably mapped at a scale of 1:24,000.

CR

Defined in the Glacial Lake Agassiz Geomorphic Region by Bluemle (1967).

 

Crevasse Splay

DELTA

DE

This item does not differentiate between different types of deltas. It includes deltas formed in lakes; fan deltas, where a river enters a riverine lake; and, deltas deposited where a river enters a larger river valley.

 

Depression

DEPR

D

As used in the code, Depression is a general descriptive term for a relatively small topographic basin. It usually is used in conjunction with glacial Landscapes. The item may include Linked Depressions or Interdunal Depressions where they are not differentiated. Some Depressions may be old abandoned quarries which are indistinguishable as to their origin without a historic landuse record search.

 

Disintegration Ridge

DIS_RIDGE

ESKER

EK

 
 

Floodplain, Undifferentiated

FLOOD

F

This item is mapped in lower order valleys where individual Floodplain types are not large enough, or distinct enough, to map at a scale of 1:24,000. Marshes and lakes on Floodplains are considered subdivisions of Floodplains and usually are not distinguished individually because many are seasonal and subject to large seasonal fluctuations in water depth and size. Individual sloughs on Floodplains are not distinguished unless they are of considerable length and mapped as a Paleochannel. Otherwise, they are considered part of the lateral accretion Floodplain morphology.

 

Floodplain, Type "w"

FL_W

FW

Type "w" Floodplains have point bars or other channel migration features evident and recently active based on the lack, paucity, or type of vegetation. It often is associated with comparatively sparse or no vegetation; typically occurs between a marked discontinuity with other Floodplain types and the active river channel; and, lacking the aforementioned, may be an arbitrary distinction between Type "w" and Type "x" Floodplain types.

 

Floodplain, Type "x"

FL_X

FX

Type "x" Floodplains have point bars or other channel migration features evident, but they have not been recently active.

 

Floodplain, Type "y"

FL_Y

FY

Point bars or other channel migration features not evident on Type "y" Floodplains, either due to burial by younger overbank deposits, or they were never present.

 

Floodplain, Type "z"

FL_Z

FZ

Type "z" Floodplains do not have evident point bars or other channel migration features; usually are surrounded or partially surrounded by Valley Terrace or Catastrophic Flood Landscapes; and/or are outside of, or otherwise isolated from, obvious former channel and/or overbank belts.

 

Floodplain and Terraces, Undifferentiated

FLO&TERR

FN

This item is mapped in lower order valleys wide enough to have Floodplains and Terraces, but where individual terrace areas are not large enough, or distinct enough from Floodplain areas, to map at a scale of 1:24,000.

 

Hillslope

HILL

H

This item refers only to relatively steep and high 1) valley walls along higher order valleys with floodplains; 2) uplandhillslopes; and, 3) upland or valley slopes in bedrock terrains. It primarily consists of backslope hillslope components (sensu Ruhe, 1969). The upper limit usually is mapped where contour lines become more widely spaced, generally representing the position of the shoulder slope.

 

Hummock

HUMMOCK

HU

As used in the code, Hummock is a general descriptive term for a relatively small topographic rise. It usually is used in conjunction with glacial Landscapes. The item may include Doughnuts and Ice-Walled Lake Beds where they are not differentiated.

IK

Ring-shaped kame terrace formed in glaciolacustrine waters that surround stagnant glacial ice blocks (Hudak and Hajic, in preparation).

 

Ice-Walled Lake Bed

ICE_WALLED

IW

This item is mapped in conjunction with the Stagnant Ice Landscape. It is used for circular Hummocks where associated stratified fine-textured deposits >2m thick are interpreted as lake sediments.

 

Ice-Walled Lake Beach Ridge

ICE_WAL_BR

IB

This item is mapped in conjunction with the Stagnant Ice Landscape. It consists of narrow, arcuate, ridges that rise above surrounding Stagnant Ice LsSA terrain. It often is associated with, but not necessarily adjacent to, Hummocks mapped as Ice-Walled Lake Beds

 

Interdunal Depression or Pond

POND

DP

This item refers to a Depression that is interpreted to have been formed wholly or in part by eolian processes. It typically, but not necessarily, is at least partially surrounded by Eolian Dunes. Such a depression may seasonally or perennially contain a relatively small water body.

Linked Depression(s)

DEPR_LINK

LD

Kemmis (1991). This unit is mapped in conjunction with the Stagnant Ice Landscape only where Depressions and Depression linkages are visible on air photos. Many areas mapped as Depressions may fall within this unit genetically, but either the linkage between individual Depressions was unclear, or Depressions were too small to map at the scale of 1:24,000.

Type "o" Overbank Deposits

OVERO

O

This unit is used where relatively very light tonal contrasts on aerial photography of valley areas are interpreted as overbank deposits that are likely to include, or field evidence indicates, deposition of significant post-settlement alluvium. Here "significant" means a sufficient thickness to obscure prehistoric cultural deposits. In plowed areas this typically means >0.27 m thick. In unplowed areas, it may be thinner. If not otherwise noted, presence is implied with Floodplain Type "w".

 

Type "a" Overbank Deposits

OVERA

This unit is used where relatively light tonal contrasts on aerial photography of valley areas are interpreted as overbank deposits. They may or may not include significant post-settlement alluvium.

This unit is usually applied to upland landscapes. It includes the range of recognizable products from the combination of upland hillslope erosional, depositional, and soil evolution processes. See Johnson (1990).

Thick (>2m) Glaciolacustrine sediment mantles may occur in some Outwash or other depressional settings, and could have been interpreted as a Glaciolacustrine Plain, except for the dominant geologic process that shaped the landform.
