Skapinsky, Stanley Alfred
MetadataShow full item record
The Kingfield quadrangle is located in north central Maine. Work has been completed in adjacent quadrangles on the east, west, and south. Study of the petrology, stratigraphy, structure, and geomorphology reveals the geologic history of the area. The topography, a result of modification by Pleistocene glaciation imposed on a landscape of late maturity, has been developed on the following formations (from oldest to youngest): Lost Brook, Perry Mountain, Parmachenee, and Madrid. More than 12,000 feet of Orodovician to Mid-Silurian strata constitute a variety of rock types which have undergone the effects of regional and contact metamorphism [TRUNCATED]
