Description:
Abstract:
This data shows the thickness of surficial deposits overlying bedrock, weathered bedrock, and Coastal Plain formations in New Jersey. The thickness range, in feet, of the surficial deposits is shown in the THICKNESS field. Designation "discontinuous and less than 10 feet" in the THICKNESS field indicates areas of exposed bedrock, weathered bedrock, and Coastal Plain formations where surficial deposits are patchy and generally less than 10 feet thick.
Purpose:
To provide data for environmental, water-resource, and engineering purposes.

Data_Quality_Information:
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Attribute accuracy is tested by manually comparing hard copy plots of the digital data with the source materials. When attributes can not be visually verified on plots they are interactively queried and verified on the screen.
Completeness_Report:
Exhaustive checks completed on all data layers. Internal review by author and compiler, Survey management, and Survey Editorial staff.
