Abstract

The Nipissing beach bar east of Sarnia, Ontario, covers wave-reworked material, including several logs and other remains of plants and mollusks, and, at one place, soil below it. Radiocarbon dates of two logs are: $4,650 \pm 200$ and $4,610 \pm 210$. A theoretical time/uplift curve suggests the beginning of the Nipissing phase of Lake Huron $4,300 \pm 270$ years ago.
