The Office of the Massachusetts State Geologist was asked to make a determination of the origin of the rocks at the Bishop and Clerks Shoal and Collier Ledge in Nantucket Sound, Massachusetts. The objective was to determine if the rocks at these two locations were natural features deposited by the glaciers or carried by barge and deposited by man. A field visit was conducted on September 15, 2004. This report summarizes the findings and conclusions.
