    Located in the northwest corner of Illinois, Zion is the closest town to South Beach in the Illinois Beach State Park. Beach. Illinois Beach State Park offers two beaches comprising miles of shoreline along beautiful Lake Michigan and is the only beach ridge shoreline in Illinois. South Beach is located on the Zion side of the park and offers a picnic area, restrooms and ample parking.   Lake Michigan: Grew up on this lake - See 1, traveler reviews, candid photos, and great deals for Illinois, at Tripadvisor.5/5(K).

    Lake Sharpe is the center of three reservoirs formed by dams built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on the Missouri River in South Dakota in the early 's. The design service life of the reservoir is to years based on the expected rate of erosion of the shoreline to Cited by: 1. Lake Michigan is one of the five Great Lakes of North America. It is the second-largest of the Great Lakes by volume (1, cu mi (4, km 3)) and the third-largest by surface area (22, sq mi (58, km 2)), after Lake Superior and Lake Huron (and is slightly smaller than the U.S. state of West Virginia).To the east, its basin is conjoined with that of Lake Huron through the narrow Straits Average depth: ft (85 m).

Jibson, A study of the glacial kame culture in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana; with an appendix by James B. Griffin. Observations and written opinions regarding coastal erosion activity in the Great Lakes region date back into the nineteenth century. In Allegan County, Michigan (the site of this study), bluff recession rates ranged from 1 to 2 ft (– m) per year between and , with bluff-loss events being erratic in size and timing (Chamberlin, ; Powers, ; Seibel, ).

For two time periods, andrates of retreat vary from 10 to 75 cm/yr between discrete segments of bluffs (defined by lithology) and between time periods for a given bluff segment.

The average retreat rates for the entire area, however, do not vary significantly between the two time periods and are approximately cm/yr. AMOUNTS AND RATES OF BLUFF-TOP RECESSION ALONG THE LAKE MICHIGAN SHORELINE AT FORT SHERIDAN, ILLINOIS, FROM By Randall W.

Jibson. Open-File Report U.S. Geological Survey Golden, Colorado. Examined bluffs along 30 km of the Lake Michigan shoreline from Wilmette to Waukegan, Illinois, to measure amounts and variation in retreat rates and to determine what factors control rates and processes of retreat.

The predominant bluff-retreat process is shallow- to intermediate-depth translational landsliding triggered by heavy rainfall and wave erosion at the base of the bluff; rotational. Assoc.

High lake levels in the Lake Michigan-Huron basin (Smith et al., ) are reducing beach width along the Lake Michigan coastline allowing wave action to erode the bases of coastal bluffs at the highest rate of the past 30 much as 70% of the Lake Michigan shoreline in Wisconsin consists of bluffs that are composed of unconsolidated glacial deposits (Mickelson et al Author: Lucas K.

Amounts and rates of bluff-top recession along the Lake Michigan shoreline at Fort Sheridan, Illinois, from Open-File Report1 fig.; 1 table [Link] Jibson, Randall W. The results indicate that wave erosion is a significant cause of coastal bluff instability and bluff top recession.

Bluff height, offshore bathymetry, groundwater seeps, and shoreline orientation also can play a role, and shore protection proved to be an important variable in determining slope stability. However, recent research along the shores of Lake Michigan has demonstrated that this is not the case.

Hard shoreline protection structures have been shown to more than double recession rates of bluff top and toe erosion in certain areas. Read more. Illinois, private property and riparian rights along the Illinois coast extend to the calm water shoreline and migrate landward or lakeward with changing lake level (Illinois case law: Brundage v.

Knox, ). As defined by the USACE, the OHWM along the Illinois coast is feet ( m) relative to the International Great Lakes Datum (IGLD. Factors Controlling Rates of Bluff Recession at Two Sites on Lake Michigan over the time scales considered at the two study sites.

Storm frequency alone has little impact on re-cession rates over the time intervals studied. Because the epoch-averaged precipitation trend is. The study of erosion along the Lake Superior shoreline began in the s with an analysis of bluff materials, shoreline recession rates, and additional information collected in a survey published by the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program (Need, et al., ).

The study covered the shoreline. Lake Michigan: Various Beaches along Lake Michigan - See 1, traveler reviews, candid photos, and great deals for Illinois, at Tripadvisor.5/5(K). Much of the Lake Michigan shoreline in Wisconsin has a coastal bluff varying in height from less than 20 feet to over feet.

These bluffs erode in a number of ways and at varying rates (Figure 1). Over profiles of these bluffs were measured and analyzed for slope stability in the mids and again in the mids.
