Testing sequence stratigraphic models by drilling Miocene foresets on the New Jersey shallow shelf
Kenneth G. Miller et al., Dept. of Earth and Planetary Sciences, Rutgers University, Piscataway, New Jersey 08854, USA. Posted online 13 Sept. 2013; http://dx.doi.org/10.1130/GES00884.1. Themed issue: Results of IODP Exp313: The History and Impact of Sea-Level Change Offshore New Jersey.
Kenneth Miller and colleagues present seismic, core, log, and chronologic data on three early to middle Miocene sequences sampled across a transect of seismic clinothems (prograding sigmoidal sequences) in topset, foreset, and bottomset locations beneath the New Jersey shallow continental shelf (Int
