Lower Connecticut Basin (1787 words)
Ponding to this level in the Connecticut River valley was due to blockage by sediment dams to the south formed by deposits of units Cwo and lce.
Because the NE-SW trend of the Salmon River valley was parallel to the retreating ice margin, the southern part of it at least was probably uncovered all at once instead of sequentially northward as were valleys that trended perpendicular to the ice margin.
Initial ponding was behind deposits of unit sa in Salmon River valley; levels of ponding increased up valley; delta surfaces rise from 2l0 ft (64 m) at south end (ponded behind 220-ft [67-m] head of unit sa) to 325 ft (99 m) at the north end of the unit.
