Over geologic quadrangle maps and publications are now available . This was not the case in the Gulf of Maine and Bay of Fundy, where vigourous ice stream drawdown cleared ice from these regions leaving a glacio-isostatically depressed landscape. Before the land rebounded, beaches, and deltas formed that have been radiocarbon dated between 15 (~ CAL) and ka (~15 CAL).

  This "White Head Island horst" is bound on its eastern side by the submerged Grand Manan Fault, which lies within the Bay of Fundy and provides a southwestern border for the larger Fundy Basin (Fig. 1). of the Bay of Fundy and into Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. Cape Cod has glacial deposits of sand and gravel, and sandstone and mudflats are found at the head of the Bay of Fundy (Tyrrell, ) Today much of New Brunswick, Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts are still rebounding from the glacial.

This report contains surficial sediment data from previously unpublished data sources or from gray literature. These data have been compiled as part of the National Benthic Habitats and Marine Aggregate Resources and Processes Projects to update the existent maps on surficial sediment distribution available for the Gulf of Maine region.

Bivalve reefs are important in pelagic–benthic coupling and, in order to assess these linkages quantitatively, it is necessary to obtain accurate maps of reef biomass and production. Presented here is a preliminary attempt to use modern surficial geological techniques, including sidescan sonar and a high resolution seismic reflection system to map the distribution of bivalve reefs in the Bay.

The oldest formations are gneiss rocks in the Berkshires, which were metamorphosed from older rocks during the Proterozoic Grenville orogeny as the proto-North American continent Laurentia collided against proto-South America.MAINE’S STATE FOSSIL.

Pertica quadrifaria. Pertica quadrifaria is the scientific name of a primitive plant that lived about million years ago during the Devonian Period.

Keep in mind that it’s a very large area and viewing tides will take up a good chunk of time. The Bay of Fundy is on the west side of Nova Scotia, but the north and east side of Nova Scotia are also very nice places to go sailing. Kevin
