Sand Resources on the Inner Continental Shelf Off the Central New Jersey Coast
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Coastal Engineering Research Center, 1982 - Continental shelf - 48 pages
About 1800 square kilometers of the central New Jersey inner shelf between Avalon and 7.5 kilometers north of Barnegat Inlet was surveyed to assess and quantify marine sand and gravel resources of 6 meters below the sea floor. The primary data consist of 1133 kilometers of high-resolution seismic reflection profiles, limited side-scan sonar coverage, and 97 vibracores, a maximum of 6 meters long. Limits of the surveys were generally from about the -7-meter depth contour seaward to about the -21-meter depth contour, a maximum of some 22 kilometers offshore.
