Glacial Sediment and the Ice Age in New Jersey Over the last one and a half million years of the Pleistocene Epoch, great ice sheets centered in the subarctic regions of North America grew during periods when the climate was colder than it is now.

These continental-sized glaciers formed from the gradual buildup of compacted and recrys- tallized snow. The New Jersey Coastal Plain is the only part of the Atlantic Coastal Plain that was proximal to the southern extent of continental glacial advances during the Pleistocene.

Evidence of cold, continental climates and periglacial phenomena are abundantly preserved on the New Jersey Coastal Plain. Quaternary deposits along the.

The New Jersey Highlands lie north. New Jersey is a very geologically and geographically diverse region in the United States' Middle Atlantic region, offering variety from the Appalachian Mountains and the Highlands in the state's northwest, to the Atlantic Coastal Plain region that encompasses both the Pine Barrens and the Jersey state's geological features have impacted the course of settlement, development, commerce.

The farthest southward movement is marked by another feature known as a moraine, and the terminal moraine of the Wisconsin Glacier is famously noted in geology text books, including a remembered photograph of a road cut in the vicinity of Buttzville, New Jersey.

When he took a geology course at Rutgers in the late s, the professor took the class to Buttzville so we could see the terminal.

During this time period, glaciers covered much of northern New Jersey, carving New Jersey’s ridges and valleys out of the bedrock and leaving behind a complex system of glacial deposits and moraines. The latest (Wisconsinan) glacial advance into eastern Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey resulted in the deposition of a conspicuous terminal moraine which crosses the Delaware River ∼11 mi south of the gap near Belvidere, New Jersey (Fig.

The moraine reaches heights of more than ft in places. New Jersey Geologic History New Jersey Coastal Composition.

The first thing you will notice from the maps is that Coastal Plain of New Jersey makes up more than half of New Jersey’s geology. This region’s topography is very different than that of the Northern part of the state.

The Coastal Plain is overall very flat and reaches as far West as the Delaware River. He began working for the Department of Environmental Protection’s New Jersey Geological Survey in the early s.

“New Jersey had been included in the 19th-century mapping of glacial deposits, but no one had looked seriously and statewide at our glacial geology since it was completed in the in early 20th century,” Harper says. Discovery. The discovery of Glacial Lake Passaic is credited to Professor George Hammell Cook, once the State Geologist of New Jersey and Vice President of Rutgers 's first official mention of the lake was in the New Jersey Annual Report of the State Geologist for the Yearin which he described flat-topped hills and drift-like deposits in the upper Passaic Valley that.

Glacial Geology. About 30 percent of Pennsylvania was covered by glaciers during the Ice Age. It was a time when large sheets of moving ice blanketed the northern half of North America. These glaciers helped to sculpt the hills and valleys of Pennsylvania and deposited materials such as boulders, sediment, and other debris, including pieces of.

During the past million years, colossal ice sheets gripped the globe, perhaps 15 different times. Glaciers sculpted about one-third of the earth’s landmass. Sometimes 2 miles thick, they stretched from present-day New York to Montana, and from Ohio to Hudson Bay, Canada.

GEOLOGY A. Physiography New Jersey can be divided into four regions, known as physiographic provinces, which are areas with similar sequences of rock types, geologic structures and a common geologic history (see Figure 3a). The northwestern section of New Jersey is part of the Valley and Ridge.

Northern New Jersey was the southernmost limit of glacial advance during the Pleistocene era. The glacial features left in this area consist of a terminal moraine that runs across the grain of the uplands from northwest to southeast. North of the moraine glacial valleys were filled partially with debris, lakes were formed, and the uplands were.
