Abstract

Logs and samples from 190 wells located along the Atlantic Coastal Plain between New Jersey and Georgia have been studied. For comparison the records of a few additional wells in Alabama and Florida have been studied. Particular attention has been paid to the macrofossils (especially mollusks) and an attempt has been made to establish the correlation of the subsurface formations. A series of cross sections is presented as well as a correlation chart of the Coastal Plain formations, Cretaceous to Pleistocene, and a map showing the approximate configuration of the basement rock. This study has shown the presence of several formations in the subsurface, not known from outcrops in the region, and has extended the range of others.
