GEOG8260.6: The color of our ideas

  1. 1. Past severe floods in southern ManitobaThe frequency and anatomical development of floodsignatures in 1826 suggest that flood was the most severesince at least AD 1648.Despite comments by an early fur trapper that suggestflooding was unusually extensive in 1776, there is no tree-ring evidence for such an event.The Assiniboine and Red River floods of 1826 coincided withsevere frost damage in the south-central United States, whichimplies that unusual spring weather extended throughoutcentral North America.
