Abstract

In the province of Maine, during the Pleistocene cold episodes, many freeze-thaw cycles induced frost splitting of porous rocks such as jurassic limestones and palaeozoic rhyolite, and the frost wedging of non-porous paleozoic sandstones. Head covered many slopes. Screes and stratified slope deposits developed at the foot of rock walls
