Field Trip-Pleistocene Geology of Long Island North Shore

Metadata Updated: December 11, 2019

Our objectives for today's field trip for the Long Island Geologists are to take the participants to 3 localities on the north shore of Long Island (Figure 1, cover) to view evidence that we think requires a total revision in previously published interpretations of Long Island's glacial geology. We shall also see exposures of the Cretaceous strata, look at some evidence on the rate of retre-at of the coastal cliffs, and study the relationships between the fans at the mouths of gullies eroded into the sediments of the coastal cliffs and the modern beach.
