Glaciated coasts are dominated or closely affected by glaciers and glacier processes. They include: (1) modern systems in direct contact with glacial ice; (2) proglacial systems, in front of or adjacent to active glaciers; and (3) paraglacial coasts, formerly glaciated systems that are controlled by glacial geomorphology, sediment sources, and/or isostatic responses. There are a wide variety of glaciated coasts, usually with both erosional and depositional features. Coasts may be actively glaciated systems, such as Antarctica, southeastern Alaska, and Greenland, or formerly glaciated regions such as Scandinavia, Scotland, northeastern Canada and New England, the Pacific Northwest, and southern Chile. Past Glacial Environments, Second Edition, presents a revised and updated version of the very successful first edition of Menzies’ book, covering a breadth of topics with a focus on the recognition and analysis of former glacial environments, including the pre-Quaternary glaciations. The book is made up of chapters written by various geological experts from across the world, with the editor. 2. New Jersey's outer coast is made up of mostly barrier islands, while Maine's is mostly bedrock. Why does the coast of New Jersey differ so much from Maine? a) New Jersey has fewer freezing days; b) Maine's coastline is higher than New Jerseys; c) A subduction zone is slowly forming off the Maine coast; d) Maine's coast was glaciated, New.
