Fire Island Coastal Change

Storm Impact and Recovery: Hurricane Sandy - Beach Profiles (non-JavaScript Version)

As part of the assessment of beach and dune morphologic change associated with Hurricane Sandy and the continuing efforts to track post-Sandy recovery, differential global positioning system (DGPS) elevation data are collected along 15 shore-perpendicular profiles extending from just inland of the crest of dune to the low-tide swash zone. Profiles were surveyed one day prior to landfall, over a period of three days immediately after the storm, and re-surveyed periodically to capture both the initial impact of the event and the ongoing recovery of the beach system. Detailed information on the methodology and instrumentation specifications, as well as published data for 2012-2014 can be found in Henderson et al., 2015.

Data September 2016 are provisional and unpublished.
