The object studied in this paper is a pair (Φ ,Y), where Φ is a random surface in RN and Y a random vector field on RN. The pair is jointly stationary, i.e. its distribution is invariant under translations. The vector field Y is smooth outside Φ but may have discontinuities on Φ . Gauss' divergence theorem is applied to derive a flow conservation law for Y. For R1 this specializes to a well-known rate conservation law for point processes. As an application, relationships for the linear contact distribution of Φ are derived.
