Figure F6. Idealized locations of a three-hole transect to determine the time and magnitude of the base-level fall associated with sequence boundary SB2. This transect samples the youngest sediments below SB2 (Hole M0027A), the oldest sediments above SB2 (Hole M0028A), and more distal sediments above SB2 to ensure dateable material and provide additional backstripping information (Hole M0029A). Bio- and lithofacies will evaluate predicted models of clinoform evolution. Because of the stacked arrangement of sequences offshore New Jersey, several clinoforms can be sampled at one location. HST = highstand systems tract, TST = transgressive systems tract, LST = lowstand systems tract.
