Abstract

New field data and scrutiny of past reports reveal no firm evidence that local cirque glaciers were rejuvenated after late Wisconsin continental ice disappeared from the northern Green Mountains of Vermont, Mount Katahdin in Maine, and the northern Presidential Range of New Hampshire. The sharpness of some cirques and aretes in New England is not reliable evidence that the cirques were last occupied by local glaciers, for even sharper cirques and aretes have survived overriding by icesheets in other regions. -from Authors
