At the maximum extent of the glacier during the Lake Border phase, a high level (initially 470 m, eventually dropping to 340 m altitude) proglacial lake must have been bounded by the glacier on the west and southwest, older interlobate deposits to the southeast, and probably the Saginaw lobe to the east.
While it is widely held that initial opening of the Strait was a consequence of spillover of a proglacial lake that existed in the southern North Sea basin .
Briefly, the nival (snowmelt-dominated) regime is the most prevalent, and the proglacial regime exists only in the western mountains.
Resolving this debate might require further consideration of whether the absence of steppe pollen and ancient DNA in the earliest sediments from the corridor region constitutes proof of absence of the species of interest," McGowan wrote, "because depositional conditions in proglacial lake environments are often unstable, leading to sediment reworking and degradation.

Glaciofluvial sandur sediments deposited by proglacial melt water occur as wide belts in front of the ice marginal zones of the Weichselian glaciation (Katzung & Muller 2004).
However, their occurrence indicates that this interval was not representative of an isolated proglacial lake, devoid of life.
boops in the South Fork Hughes River may be associated with Pleistocene refuge or dispersal routes, as the precursor of the Little Kanawha River has been suggested as a possible refuge or dispersal route for fishes during two periods of proglacial impoundments, Teays Lake and Lake Monongahela periods of Pleistocene glaciation (Hocutt et al.
