 Bathymetry of Lake Ontario
Apparently in most areas around the lake perimeter, Quaternary sediments are relatively thin or absent, and bedrock exposures are common, possibly reflecting the effects of subglacial erosion and subsequent abrasion by lacustrine waves and currents.
This asymmetry is related to the bedrock configuration underneath the lake floor, and its differential resistance to glacial erosion (Hutchinson, et al., 1993).
This was probably the location of the Lake Ontario shoreline in early postglacial time, and the three channels were probably the main outflow channels for the lake at this time (Anderson and Lewis, 1985).
