Course Description:

From mountains to beaches, New Jersey has it all - thanks to its geology! Geology plays a critical role not only in our recreational options but also in remediation. Geology affects contamination distribution and migration, and as such, impacts treatment options. This 2-hour course provides a basic understanding of New Jersey geology and its effects on contamination. Both surficial deposits and bedrock will be discussed as each have unique properties relevant to remediation.

This training session will highlight:

  • Basic geologic principles: structure and age of the Earth, rock types, rock cycle, plate tectonics, and more
  • Identification and important history of each of New Jersey’s Physiographic Provinces: Highlands, Valley & Ridge, Piedmont and Coastal Plain
  • Case studies
