The Adirondack Journal of Environmental Studies Volume 21

Geological study of the Adirondacks began in the 1830s with the forays of Ebenezer Emmons, under the aegis of New York State. Scientific research has continued unabated, and in recent years, great strides have been made in unraveling the complexities of the plate tectonic history, bedrock geology, glacial processes, and soil/water systems. Much of this research has been spurred by economic and environmental concerns, but in the main, the Adirondacks are studied because they are fundamentally interesting as a geological terrain set in a landscape of preserved, “forever wild” ecosystems.

Volume 21 of AJES is a snapshot in time of the ageless geology of the Adirondacks. The authors and editors have worked tirelessly to make it an important reference document. This issue gathers our knowledge of the geology of the Adirondacks with the goal of informing a broader public audience. The papers summarize historical and current work, calling upon the accumulated studies of many excellent geoscientists who have worked in the Adirondacks over two centuries.
