Alone Together Virtual Lecture Series: “The Glaciers That Formed Long Island”

Saturday, June 20 | 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Sat., June 20th @ 5pm.
Professor Gilbert Hanson describes how 23,000 years ago an advancing continental ice sheet (glacier) pushed sediments in front of it formed the Ronkonkoma and Harbor Hill moraines, thus creating the undulating, east-west ridges of Long Island and the South and North Forks and leaving behind such features as kettle holes, tunnel valleys, and outwash plains. Gilbert Hanson, Ph.D., was on the faculty of Stony Brook University, retiring from the Department of Geosciences in 2020. He has been studying, teaching, and doing research on the glacial geology of Long Island for the last 20+ years.
