... and isostatically depressed region and deposited the Presumpscot Formation. (2) During emergence, outwash of the Embden Formation was gradationally deposited on the Presumpscot Formation. (3) As emergence progressed, the Embden and Presumpscot Formations were deeply incised by the early Kennebec River. (4) Outwash...

... (the Presumpscot Formation) along an ocean or river shoreline ( Novak, 1987 , 1990 ). Factors associated with coastal landslides in Maine include steep bluffs higher than 6 m (20 ft), muddy sediment, and rainfall or spring thaw ( Devin and Sandford, 1990 ).

... (A). A combination of GPR surveying and coring in the central unit of Caribou Bog confirmed results of previous studies showing a general stratigraphy consisting of, from surface to bottom, peat soil, organic-rich lake sediment (gyttja), and glaciomarine sediment (Presumpscot Formation) presumably underlain...

... Pond are located along the central peninsular coast of Maine ( Table 1 ; Fig. 2 ). Silver Lake (43° 44.7′ N; 69° 47.3′ W) occupies a depression behind the Hunnewell Beach barrier on the western flank of the Kennebec River estuary ( Fig. 2 ). It has an open water area of 51,430 m 2 and an average...

... sediment. The underlying mineral basement is a glaciomarine silt-clay, the Presumpscot Formation. Based on available regional geologic data, we suspect that a sand and gravel unit underlies the glaciomarine sediment. Sand was found beneath the glaciomarine sediment in deep cores obtained from the central...

... sediments derived from erosion of weathered plutons within coastal river basins. Multiple post-glacial sea-level fluctuations drove the redistribution of these sediments across the modern lowland and inner shelf. Central to the formation of barrier systems was the paraglacial sand maximum, a time...
