Title: Correlation of Paleocene and Eocene Formations and Cretaceous-Paleocene Boundary in New Jersey

Author(s): Halsey W. Miller, Jr. (2)


The Hornerstown formation is correlated with the Midway stage (Paleocene) of the Gulf Coast. The Vincentown formation is correlated with the Aquia formation (lower Eocene) of Maryland, and the Manasquan formation is correlated with the Claiborne stage (middle Eocene) of Alabama. The presence of a "middle greensand" unit between the Navesink (Cretaceous) and Hornerstown formations is recognized, and it is suggested that this is a southwestward extension of the Red Bank formation (Cretaceous).
