Abstract/ Summary

Study of stratified glacial deposits near Farmington, New Hampshire reveals that the retreat of Late Wisconsin ice in this area proceeded by means of ice-marginal stagnation. Eskers in t his area were formed within localized ice masses a t or near the base of thin ice by streams which had dendritic patterns and were subaerially exposed.
