dc.description.abstractfrom the abstract, "The shallow (< 100 't) stratigraphy of the Lower Bay floor was investigated in order to estimate the volume of sand and gravel deposits under the Lower Bay. Four types of information were studied. These were: (1) core and boring loqs , (2 ) seismic reflection profiles, (3) the surficial sediment distribution on the floor of the Lower Bay, (4) the stratigraphy in Long Island , Staten Island, northern New Jersey , and the New York Bight. In general, marine sands overlie glacial outwash sands which, in turn, overlie unconsolidated Cretaceous sediments. Along the margins of the Bay, sands are known to rest on fine-grained deposits at depth; the composition of layers under lying the surficial sand deposits in the central and eastern Bay is unknown. Surficial mud deposits are confined primarily to Raritan and and Sandy Hook bays . They may be as much as 150 feet thick . Sand deoosits were identified that have a total volume of 3,429 million cubic yards."en_US
dc.description.sponsorshipThe works contained within this collection are the final products of a joint collaboration between the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SOMAS); the MASIC Library and the Preservation Department. The project was conducted during the winter through summer 2013 academic semesters, and its focus was to convert older, archival records generated by SOMAS and maintained within the University Libraries to accessible, electronic resources in support of research and learning. All works are based on the original, analog (paper) records as released by SOMAS, except where born digital only records have been loaded to the system. All works have been preserved for historic purposes, please see the Marine and Atmospheric Sciences Library for assistance in viewing the analog originals upon which this project is based.en_US
