Abstract

Complex post-sedimentary deformation structures, extending to depths of 3-4 m below the surface, are present in the near-surface gravel of the Pine Barrens of southern New Jersey. These structures are thought to have formed when Late-Pleistocene permafrost degraded. These structures are interpreted in the context of the current understanding of thermokarst processes operating in permafrost regions today
