Ice Age Map

Drumlins, eskers, and moraines, oh my! The legacy of the last ice age, Downeast Maine's glacially sculpted landscape, is showcased in this unique laminated plywood tray (shown above, upper left). A colorful conversation piece, it's also a compact lesson in surficial geology, displaying the Downeast portion of the Surficial Geologic Map of Maine on top, with a legend on the back detailing how the various color-coded features were formed.

For example, eskers and kames—ridges of gravel deposited in runoff channels under the melting glacier—are shaded red and gold. Some of the longest eskers in the world are in Downeast Maine, coming together in Columbia's vast outwash plains (shaded pink) like fingers of an outstretched hand.

"As a mapmaker, intrigued by geological patterns in the landscape—lakes, roads (eskers), and hills (drumlins) aligned northwest to southeast with glacial flow, beaches (moraines) and barrens (deltas) aligned southwest to northeast with ice-margin retreat—I got interested in glacial history, and created the tray to inspire fellow explorers to appreciate Downeast Maine's 'ice age trail' landscape."

The surficial geology map, spanning Penobscot, Hancock, and Washington counties, has a glossy finish, while the back of the 14" tray is matte-finished plywood. Enjoy exploring the colorful world of Downeast surficial geology!
