The history of Long Island can be traced back to the advance (and retreat) of the massive glacier that covered much of North America near the end of the Pleistocene Era. Miranda Maliszka and Anthony Johnson, students at Hofstra University, join The Long Island History Project podcast to shed more light on this deep history. Their research, including GIS data and a Digital Elevation Model, looked at the melting of that glacier and other factors that affected the formation of Long Island.
