How are lakes formed?

Lakes are inland bodies of water that occupy depressions in the surface of the land. These depressions are called basins.

Lakes result from the flow of water into low areas. Lake water comes largely from rainfall and melting snow. The water enters a lake basin through brooks, streams, rivers, underground springs, and ground water.

The lake basins themselves are formed in several ways. Many lakes are the result of faulting or warping in the earth's crust. Lake Superior is an example of such a lake.

Sometimes lakes are created by volcanoes. A lava flow may block the outlet of a valley and form a lake basin. Sometimes the crater of an extinct volcano fills with water. Crater Lake (in South Oregon) is an example of this.

Many lakes occupy basins formed by glacial erosion. All the Great Lakes (except Superior) are examples of lakes that were formed by glaciers.

Along coastal areas, waves and shore currents sometimes close inlets and temporarily create lakes out of bays and estuaries.

In places where limestone underlies the land, ground water may dissolve and remove enough limestone to produce great sinkholes that form lake basins. Florida contains many lakes of this type.

Lakes can also be artificially made. When a dam is built across a river valley, it will block the flow of water and form a lake.

Are there any sharks in Lake Michigan?

Although Bull Sharks could make it to Lake Michigan, the water in the lake is far too cold to sustain a tropical fish Like the Bull Shark. Some smaller lakes in the area, Browns lake in Racine county for instance, have had tropical fish such as piranha sighted and even caught with in them, but this was most likely due to some one releasing the fish into the lake and not because of some self sustaining population.

Headlights Tail and Brake Lights
Turn Signals and Hazard Lights
Lake Michigan

Why would the right turn indicator stay lit whenever the headlights are on?

If BOTH turn signal indicators stay lit and don't blink when headlights are on, it could mean that the turn signal flasher relay that is sometimes located under the dashboard/and on the fuse panel is going bad. This faulty flasher/relay/fuse may continue to function and blink the turn signals when headlights are OFF, but the extra draw of power that the headlights require when they are ON could result in a a no-blink signal condition caused by a bad/faulty blinker relay that is on it's way out. Replace this blinker/relay/fuse after you check your bulbs. It is relatively inexpensive and should be replaced. I learned this on a full size 1989 GM pickup truck after spending money in the wrong directions first. It seems that I have had flasher relay problems with other GM cars or trucks that I have worked on.I would recomend you to check all of your turn, brake, and park lights if you haven't already done so. Sometimes a bad bulb will cause the problem you are having.

THE RIGHT TURN ,LIGHT ASSEMBLY HAS A BAD GROUND. SEEN IT HAPPEN LOTS OF TIMES.

If the problem started after a new turnsignal bulb was installed then pull the bulb and look into the socket. Make sure both the socket and bulb have the same number of contacts (both two or both one ). If a single contact bulb is plugged into a two contact socket it will short both of the contacts in the socket together and backfeed a power signal from either circuit into the circuit on the other contact.

Swimming

Has anyone ever successfully swam across Lake Michigan?

In 1961, Jim Moran, a car dealer in Chicago offered a $3675 prize for first swim from Chicago to Michigan City to 6 local swimmers. Ted Erikson of Chicago was only finisher.

Then in 1962 he offered a $3675 prize to first swimmer making Waukegan (same distance as MC along shoreline for better "viewing" potential) AND $10,000 to Kenosha. Dennis Matuch took Waukegan prize and Greta Andersen took $10K prize, followed by Ted Erikson who was given a token $1K.

In 1963, one $15K prize for first swimmer to go 60 miles from Chicago to Benton Harbor. Abo Heif of Egypt took the $15K prize followed by Ted Erikson who was given a token $1k.

Vicki Keith from Kingston, Ontario, Canada swam across Lake Michigan during the summer of 1988 as part of an event that saw her become the first person to swim across all five Great Lakes. She completed this task in a 2 month period and raised $548,000 to help kids with disabilities.

To date, Vicki hold's 16 world records in marathon swimming, and has raised over $1,000,000 to help develop programs for kids with physical disabilities.

A number of other people have swum across Lake Michigan, including a fellow Canadian Paula Stephanson, and American Jim Dreyer. Jim Dreyer is from Byron Center, MI. He crossed Lake Michigan in 1991, from Two Rivers to Ludington, and raised money for the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of America mentoring program. He got involved with the program when he was in his 20s.

Jim Dreyer followed triathlon rules as opposed to marathon swimming rules and therefore wore a wet suit for his crossing. Wet suits are not permitted under the FINA marathon swimming rules, so although he was successful in the crossing, and was able to help kids in the Big Brothers and Big Sisters organization, his swim should not be compared with marathon swimmers like Vicki Keith and Paula Stephanson who follow marathon swimming rules and therefore wear only a bathing suit, and bathing cap and have their swims overseen by a marathon swimming governing body to ensure all rules are adhered to.

What is the current lake level for Jim Chapman Lak?

As of 02 JUL 2007 @ 0518 GMT, Lake Jim Chapman's water level was at 438.30 elevation above sea level. You can go to: http://www.swf-wc.usace.army.mil/reports/fish.htm and get all present lake elevations. It's difficult to get the level in feet of depth since the lake levels vary so, elevation above sea level is the method used by the corps of engineers. Don Zimmer

What was the largest recorded wave height on Lake Michigan?

100ft waves where recorded in 1947 (unverified - gpronger 20110514)

From gpronger:

I ended up here after Googling the question. However, I am unable to verify 100 foot. The problem would be that the size of a wave is controlled by the size of the body of water (fetch) as is the period (distance between waves).

On Lake Michigan we can have a seich; which is similar to a tsunami but not due to a earthquake or underwater landslide but weather.

Waves, as best I can tell can get to around 20 feet with Lake Superior at 30 feet.

What was the name of the boy who was killed during the civil rights movement while on a raft in Lake Michigan when he floated onto the white side of the beach?

His name was Eugene Williams, a teenager. He was swimming between 26nd and 29th Streets when he was struck by a rock. He was prevented from reaching the shore by the huge crowds of whites and blacks. He held on for as long as he could to a railroad tie, but after some time, he no longer had the strength to hold on. He went under and drowned. Eugene Williams is correct. However it was not during the Civil Rights Movement as we know it today. It was in 1919 during the "Great Migration," which was the period African-Americans came en masse to Chicago and other Northern cities. The murder of Williams sparked a Race Riot on the South Side that left 39 dead and hundreds injured.

Temperature
Lake Michigan

What is a safe water temperature for inland sailboating with kids in Michigan?

Water temperature is only one of many factors that have a bearing on boating safety. It becomes an issue only if someone is no longer in the boat, but in the water. And the principles are the same everywhere. Michigan is no different. If the main concern is hypothermia, this web site will give information: http://www.ussartf.org/cold_water_survival.htm So will many other websites that come up with an Internet search for hypothermia. But it matters little what the water temperature is if children are not wearing personal flotation devices (PFD's). Even if they can swim and the water temperature is 90 degrees, the problems that can result in an unexpected "swim" can easily be followed by drowning. The PFD's must be the correct size for the child and preferably Type I or II. Type III PFD's are "legal" in that they are Coast Guard approved, and they are easier to wear and more fashionable, but they are not designed to turn someone who is face down in the water over. Proper discipline and good judgment must also be in place. Bow riding might be fun, but it is hardly safe. The skipper needs to know the weather and when to come in. Speed needs to be appropriate for the lake and the conditions (both weather and congestion). These are just a few of the factors that affect boating safety. A good captain can make boating in 40 degree water safer than a poor captain in 80 degree water. Remember, too, that the water temperature at the shore is seldom the same as it is in the middle of the lake. Regardless of the temperature, all safe practices should continually be observed.
