- We use magnetostratigraphy and Sr-isotope stratigraphy to improve stratigraphic control for the Eocene to Oligocene of the New Jersey coastal plain (ACGS4 borehole). Magnetostratigraphy in many cases is complicated in outcrop sections of shallow-water ( Oligocene and correlate these events with similar hiatuses observed in other continental-shelf, slope, and epicontinental settings. In addition, a hiatus probably occurred near the middle Eocene/upper Eocene boundary. We conclude that the interregional distribution of these Eocene-Oligocene hiatuses indicates a global cause: eustatic change.
