AbstractResults of a laboratory study of some of the physical properties of varved clay from Steep Rock Lake are presented. Tests show a considerable variations in properties, especially water content and plasticity, between the light and dark laminate of varved clay. Grain-size analyses, indicate that the Steep Rock varved clay are not diatactic. The test results suggest that flocculation resulting from varying physical-chemical condtions in the lake was responsible for the deposition of the varved clay.
