Figure 2. A map showing moraines in southern New England and New York.

Figure 2. Map showing the location of end moraines (black polygons) and submerged moraine line (dashed lines) in southern New York and New England (modified from Gustavson and Boothroyd, 1987). The Ronkonkoma-Block Island-Nantucket end moraine represents the maximum advance of the Laurentide Ice Sheet about 20,000 years ago, and the Harbor Hill-Roanoke Point-Charleston-Buzzards Bay end moraine represents a retreated ice-sheet position from about 18,000 years ago (Uchupi and others, 2001).
