Abstract:

The long-term goal of this project is to understand the temporal and paleoenvironmental setting for the New Jersey shelf during the latest Quaternary. Precision-sited cores were collected through targets of interest buried beneath the New Jersey shelf in Fall 2002 using the AHC-800 from the RV KNORR. An initial phase of sample analysis, which is funded by this award, is critical for guiding later detailed analysis of the cores collected. As this award is on a March December cycle, these results represent amid-year progress report of this years studies.
