Excerpt from The Geology of Long Island
The surface geology of this region has already been minutely described by Mather in his Report on the Geology of the First District of New York, 1843, and also, with special reference to the glacial deposits, by Mr. Warren Upham, in his... articles on Terminal Moraines of the North American Ice Sheet, Am. J our. Sol, III, 18. I shall therefore review very brie¿y the physical characteristics of the island and endeavor to throw what additional light I can upon its geological history, from the study of sections Of strata recently exposed, and such other phenomena as it has been my fortune to Observe.
