Record #30843:

New evidence of high-level glacial drainage in the White Mountains, N.H. / Donald E. Hattin.

Title: New evidence of high-level glacial drainage in the White Mountains, N.H. / Donald E. Hattin.
Author(s): Hattin, Donald E.
Date: 1958.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1958.), Vol. 3(24) (1958)
Abstract: Newly discovered pothole field is described, and is attributed to action of meltwater from last continental glacier. Discordance of pothole orientation with slope direction is explained by inferring presence of retaining wall of ice which controlled streamflow direction during period of pothole formation. Constitute highest evidence of continental glacial drainage yet known in New England.
