To most Long Islanders the land that they live on just seems like a great big sandbox. In fact the surface of Long Island is made up of many interesting features. Geologic processes made each of these features. The pre-glacial, glacial and post-glacial events over thousands of years helped shape, and continue to shape Long Island.
