Glacial marine sedimentation dominated the inner shelf and coastal lowlands of Maine between ca. 14,000 and 11,000 B.P. Three major seismic facies interpreted as glacial marine deposits beneath the inner shelf are identified by recent high-resolution seismic reflection profiling. These are: (1) GM-M, massive glacial marine sediment, a uniform, draping blanket with abundant ice-rafted detritus, either mud or diamicton; (2) GM-D, conformable glacial marine mud, with a distinct draping geometry, usually well stratified; and (3) GM-P, less well-stratified glacial marine mud with a distinctly ponded, variable geometry. These glacial marine facies are associated with underlying seismic facies interpreted as till,...
