Figure 3. Interpreted stratigraphy profile across Rhode Island Sound, modified from Needell and others (1983b). Stratigraphy includes: PzZ pre-Mesozoic bedrock, Ku mostly late Cretaceous coastal plain and continental shelf sediments, Qdo mostly late Wisconsin glacial drift, Qdm late Wisconsin moraine deposits, Qfe Holocene transitional (fluvial and estuarine) deposits, Qpt Holocene marine sediments. Contacts are dashed where inferred. Vertical exaggeration: 19X. Location of profile shown in fig. 1.
