Suitable for adults
The last Ice Age culminated with complete burial of New York State by the Laurentide Ice Sheet about 25,000 years ago. Onset of deglaciation resulted in the blockage of previous drainage routes by sediment and the formation of expansive lakes in front of the receding glaciers. These ice-dammed lakes often failed catastrophically or at scales not observed by humans. Join Curator of Quaternary Landscape Materials Dr. Andrew Kozlowski as he provides an overview of large-scale floods, landforms, and landscape produced by spectacular meltwater events in New York State.
