ABOVE: Left: Geologic map of New Jersey and surrounding region. The color scheme is similar to that used previously, but see the legend for details. Superimposed on the geologic map is a shaded-relief map that shows topography (shape of the land surface). Right: Shaded-relief map only of the same area shown at left. Both maps are modified from the USGS North American Tapestry of Time and Terrain website (Barton et al., 2003).
BELOW: Shaded-relief map showing topography of New Jersey and surrounding areas. The Newark basin, highlighted in green, is located to the southeast of the high-relief Valley & Ridge and Highlands physiographic provinces and to the northwest of the low-relief Coastal Plain. The Newark basin occupies much of northern New Jersey, and extends into southern New York and southwestern Pennsylvania.
