BeschreibungPlease note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Watchung Outliers include six areas of isolated low hills and rock outcrops of volcanic origin in the U.S. states of New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. These geologic outliers are primarily diminutive and detached remnants of the Triassic/Jurassic age Watchung Mountain basalt flows. All six of the outliers are found along the western edge of the Newark Basin, occupying small synclines adjacent to the Ramapo fault system. The outliers include, from north to south: the Ladentown basalt, Union Hill, the New Germantown/Oldwick basalt (including Round Top), Prospect Hill, the Sand Brook basalt, and the Jacksonwald basalt.
