This is a beautiful map of a digital portrait of the Landforms of the last ice age. Joseph T. Pardee was a U.S. geologist who worked for the U.S. Geological Survey, and contributed to the understanding of the origin of the Channeled Scablands. He discovered the trail of evidence left by Glacial Lake Missoula, a lake created by an ice dam 23 miles wide & 0.5 miles high during the most recent ice age. He discovered that when the dam broke, the water flowed towards the scablands, supporting J Harlen Bretz's theory of the cataclysmic floods. This is a very informative map concerning the last ice age and resulting floods from melt.
