#11-Quaternary Geology of Long Island Sound (1991) [Gayes, Lewis, & Bokuniewicz]
-Long Island Sound is an estuary of the Atlantic Ocean in the United States that lies between the coast of Connecticut and Long Island, New York. Being that the Sound's basin existed before the ice sheets of the Late Wisconsin Glacier were present, the Quaternary period geology of this area is remarkable. The authors of this JCR Special Issue transport the reader to the second period of the Cenozoic era to highlight the special geologic features of this tidal, saline arm of the sea. Dr. Paul T. Gayes, Director of the Center for Marine and Wetland Studies at Coastal Carolina University, served as one of the principal editors on this collection of intriguing scientific papers.
