This report presents the lithostratigraphic, biostratigraphic, and Sr-isotopic data on which preliminary sequence stratigraphic studies of the Cape May borehole are based. Scientific results from the Island Beach, Atlantic City, and Cape May boreholes will appear in the Leg 150X Scientific Results volume in 1997. This report will also be printed in the same volume.
