Hurricane Sandy Response - Storm Impacts and Vulnerability of Coastal Beaches

Post-Sandy Coastal Elevation and Elevation Change Data

Following Hurricane Sandy (landfall on October 29th, 2012), the USGS obtained lidar data from multiple missions (dated from November 5th to 29th, 2012) to examine coastal change and erosion. The data have been published as a USGS data series and are available through the publications warehouse: http://pubs.usgs.gov/ds/765/.

A web viewer was developed to provide visualization of and accessibility to lidar data and the resulting DEMs and coastal dune data extractions.
