Abstract: A high-resolution seismic reflection and side scan sonar survey was performed in Kill Van Kull and Newark Bay, NY/NJ. The geophysical data are intended to delineate the subbottom sediment and rock interfaces and provide a general interpretation of the bottom and subbottom sediments to elevations of-47 ft MLLW; approximately 5 ft below the current channel bottom. The geoacoustic data are correlated with available core information. The results are intended to supplement previously obtained corings by providing continuous profile line coverage of the bottom and subbottom lithology along the length of each project area. Two high-resolution subbottom profiling systems and a side scan sonar system were used to collect the geophysical data. The results are illustrated in geologic cross sections and referenced to UTM NAD 1983 Zone 18 positioning coordinates.
