Geology of the Island Pond Area, Vermont

This resource is available as a downloadable file, ESRI Service, and as a Web Map service. Resource includes a Bedrock map, Cross Section image, Regional map, Tectonic map, and text for Bedrock geology in the Island Pond area, Vermont. For more information see links provided.The Island Pond quadrangle lies in northeastern Vermont, between the Green Mountain anticlinorium and the Connecticut River. Two recognizable metasedimentary formations are exposed within the quadrangle; the Gile Mountain formation and the Waits River formation. The Gile Mountain formation, composed predominantly of phyllites, schists, and quartzites, is shown to be synonymous with the Westmore formation as the two unite in a structural closure in the southwestern portion of the map area. The Waits River formation, characterized by a partly calcareous lithology, is believed, by the author, to be the youngest metasedimentary unit present.
