Jeffress. - Coastal Engineering Research Center (U.S.). Sand resources have been found in State waters (within three miles of the coast) along the south shore of Long Island that are of suitable quality for beach nourishment. Studies show potential sand resources also exist in federal waters beyond three miles. Entire Continental Shelf. Sand is not a scarce resource on the Long Island continental shelf.

The Massachusetts inner continental shelf between Nahant and northern Cape Cod Bay has been profoundly affected by the occupation and retreat of glacial ice sheets and relative sea-level change during the Quaternary. Marine geologic mapping of this area is a component of a statewide cooperative effort involving the U.S. Geological Survey and the. COVID Resources.

Sand resources on the inner continental shelf of the Cape May region, New Jersey. [Edward P Meisburger; S Jeffress Williams; Coastal Engineering Research Center (U.S.)]. About 1, square kilometers of the Inner Continental Shelf adjacent to Cape May peninsula was investigated by a seismic reflection and coring survey to obtain geologic information on sea floor and subbottom sand and gravel deposits having suitable characteristics for use as fill in beach nourishment and restoration projects.

The study site was located on Beach Haven Ridge at LEO Beach Haven Ridge (39°28′N, 74°15′W) is one of the 71 sand ridges on the continental shelf off New Jersey (McBride and Moslow, ).

The ridge is – km wide and depths on and around the ridge are 9–16 m. About square kilometers of the central New Jersey inner shelf between Avalon and kilometers north of Barnegat Inlet was surveyed to assess and quantify marine sand and gravel resources of.

Most of the continental shelf off New England, Long Island, and New Jersey is mantled by sand associated with lesser amounts of gravel in a quantity probably sufficient to constitute an economic asset. The mantle extends eastward onto Georges Bank and the Scotian Shelf.

The sand is quartzose and fine to coarse grained. Significant Sand Resource Areas in State and Federal Waters offshore Monmouth County, New Jersey, New Jersey Geological and Water Survey, Geologic Map. A continental shelf is a portion of a continent that is submerged under an area of relatively shallow water known as a shelf sea.

Much of these shelves has been exposed during glacial periods and interglacial shelf surrounding an island is known as an insular shelf. The continental margin, between the continental shelf and the abyssal plain, comprises a steep continental slope.

The USGS has long been involved in research in the New York inner-continental shelf starting in with the objectives of evaluating the influence of the regional geologic framework on coastal evolution, and formulating a conceptual model of sediment flux in the coastal ocean (Schwab et al., a, Schwab et al., ).Sand resources on the inner continental shelf off the central New Jersey coast: U.S.

About square kilometers of the central New Jersey inner shelf between Avalon and kilometers north of Barnegat Inlet was surveyed to assess and quantify marine sand and gravel resources 6 meters below the sea floor.

The primary data consist of kilometers of high-resolution seismic reflection profiles, limited side-scan sonar coverage, and 97 vibracores, a maximum of 6 meters long. An estimated volume of billion m 3 of marine sand resources is predicted in the cape-and ridge-associated marine sand deposits in three representative regions or tracts on the continental shelf offshore of New York and New Jersey.

These estimates are taken from probabilistic distributions of sand resources and are produced using deposit.Sand resources on the inner continental shelf of the Cape May region, New Jersey Engineers, Coastal Engineering Research Center ;[] Holding Institution: MBLWHOI Library.
