The Hartford basin consists of a long band of clastic sediments and basalts outcropping in Central Connecticut and Massachusetts. Geologists have long considered these sediments to be deposited by uniformitarian processes. Evidence will be presented in support of catastrophic deposition of these sediments over a short period of time. A possible Flood model for the formation of the basin shall be proposed.
