Cape Cod The Cape Is Young

The surface of Cape Cod is young geologically. Scientists believe that it may be less than 15,000 years since the Great Glacier retreated, leaving behind the rock, sand, and gravel which form the Cape terrain.

The biggest pile of glacial deposit is found on the Upper Cape and in the South Plymouth area. Geologists call such piles of rock and sand a “terminal moraine.”
