This essay with a field journal covers how the Wisconsin Glacier created most of the landforms of Long Island. It also explains how storms, erosion, and other forces continually reshape the island and how the shifting of the continents millions of years ago changed the location of Long Island on the globe. Attention is also given to how its landforms have influenced its land use and the types of buildings erected there. Some glacial features explained include: terminal, recessional, and ground moraines; outwash plains; erratics; and kettle lakes.
