Geology of the Newark Rift Basin


Folds in the Newark basin. Synclines (downfolds) are shown in gray; anticlines (upfolds) are shown in blue. Folds are present mostly in the immediate vicinity of the border-fault system and the major intrabasinal faults. The arrows give the plunge direction. Rectangle shows area of Jacksonwald syncline.  Modified from Schlische (1992) and Withjack et al. (2013). More on folds in the SW Newark basin>>
