Subaqueous Soil Survey of Barnegat Bay

This report represents the results of a preliminary effort by the Natural Resource Conservation Service to map the subaqueous soils of the Barnegat Bay. This initial effort led to the preparation of a general soil map for the Bay with 23 map units with 13 subaqueous soil series. In addition to the map, the report contains the map unit descriptions for both the subaqueous soils and any terrestrial soils included in the map, the soil descriptions, trace metal data, and a glossary of terms.
