Stratigraphic correlation and electric logs of wells drilled in Burlington and Ocean counties, New Jersey, show a distinctive subsurface marine phase of the Raritan Formation that contrasts with the alternating sand and clay representative of the formation's outcrop. Marine fossils from the subsurface Raritan Formation are closest related to the fauna from the Woodbine Formation of Texas. A downdip and oceanward facies change from nearshore and shoreline sediments to marine deposits is indicated.
