by David L. ISBN-13: 978-0945980407. The book begins with a short chapter on the seven varied regions of Maine, from the sandy southwest coast to the high mountain upland. I found myself regularly referring back to this chapter to orient myself.
Glaciers and Granite book. Glaciers & Granite tells us that story, the why behind all of Maine's scenic splendor. David Kendall vividly explains why Maine's landscape is so geologically varied and interesting. Rockbound, granite-ribbed, rivercarved, and lake-dotted, Maine is characterized by its geology, and yet most of us simply admire the scenery without knowing the fascinating story behind it.

Since the publication of Jerlov's classic volume on optical oceanography in 1968, the ability to predict or model the submarine light field, given measurements of the inherent optical properties of the ocean, has improved to the point that model fields are very close to measured fields.

The geology of Maine is part of the broader geology of New England and eastern North America
The geology of Maine is part of the broader geology of New England and eastern North America. The state is made up of three distinct terranes, including Laurentia, Iapetus Ocean terranes and the former microcontinent of Avalonia.
Even during full glacial times, the glacier was always melting at its fringes. Maine was left with its own local icecap and spreading center from which ice flowed in all directions (even, strange as it may seem, north!).
Unlike a river that erodes to sea level, a glacier may form valleys that are deeper than sea level. Glacial Deposits When sediment-laden water wears away bedrock in swirling eddies it forms potholes and plunge pools at the base of waterfalls. Even during full glacial times, the glacier was always melting at its fringes.
