Newark basin core and drill sites. The squares on the geologic map show the locations where long cores (ranging from tens of meters to >1 km) were recovered from the Newark basin or deep holes were drilled in the basin. ACE cores (small circles) are generally shorter and much more numerous. Modified from Schlische (1992) and Schlische (2003).
The drill rig (below) used to recover six of the seven Newark Basin Coring Project cores is shown on the Livingston Campus of Rutgers University in Piscataway, NJ. Photo by R.W. Schlische.
