To provide a basis for decisions concerning management of the Eastern Shore of Lake Ontario, study of important aspects of that region were carried out over the period 1998-2002. Personnel carrying out the projects came from the NY colleges and universities, Environment Canada, and consultants. Studies addressed lake currents, sediment type, distribution, internal structure and thickness in the lake and on the barriers; size variation of sand on the lake floor and on the beaches; water level in North Pond as a guide to short-term lake-level variations; shoreline evolution as seen in charts, maps and aerial photographs; and carbon dating of sediments to provide a chronology for the changes observed.
