About this book It may be tempting to assume that the Quaternary history of the English Lake District, a popular venue for school and university field trips, is well established. This is far from being the case, unfortunately, despite a long history of research and many advances in our understanding since the QRA last held its Annual Field. Quaternary Geologic Map of Connecticut and Long Island Sound Basin Prepared in cooperation with the State of Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection, Geological and Natural History Survey By Janet Radway Stone, John P. Schafer, Elizabeth Haley London, Mary L. DiGiacomo-Cohen, Ralph S. Lewis, and Woodrow B. Thompson.
