Abstract: Erosion is occurring along the shoreline of Delaware Bay, comprising the east coast within the state of New Jersey and the west coast within the state of Delaware. This erosion has resulted in a need to investigate the shallow offshore areas of the bay adjacent to both the Delaware and New Jersey coasts for use as borrow areas for beachfill material. The area is relatively unexplored from a geotechnical standpoint and this investigation will provide acoustical subbottom profiling, vibracore locations, and interpretation of the sediment substrate of the study area. Seismic and sedimentological data from vibracore samples were interpreted, and this report characterizes the sediment of the Broadkill Beach portion on the west side of the bay of the Delaware Beach study. This report also suggests suitable borrow areas for beachfill use.
