"Field trip on Geology of the Flax Pond Salt Marsh and the Adjacent Gravel Beach and Coastal Headlands" 
Glenn Richard
SUNY Stony Brook
Saturday June 14, 1997

During this field trip we will examine the morphology and substrate of a salt marsh, the composition and morphology of a gravel beach, and the Pleistocene stratigraphy and geomorphology of a coastal headland. The processes that created these features will be considered, and where possible, at Flax Pond they will be observed and measured as well. The trip will start at the Marine Sciences Research Center laboratory at Flax Pond where we will enter the marsh and examine the salt peat on its surface and the subsurface fresh peat. From there, we will walk along the gravel beach to the inlet and then back to the laboratory for lunch. Afterwards, a walk along a road that follows the western boundary of the marsh will take us to the coastal bluffs. At Crane Neck Point, we will examine Pleistocene till and outwash as well as Holocene conglomerate. From there, we will proceed along a gravel beach to the University's Sunwood Estate, and then along the road back to our starting point.
