The U.S. Geological Survey St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Field Research Facility of Duck, NC collaborated to gather alongshore ground-based lidar beach topography at Fire Island, NY. This high-resolution elevation dataset was collected on April 1, 2014, and is part of the USGS\'s ongoing beach monitoring effort under Hurricane Sandy Supplemental Project GS2-2B. This USGS Data Release includes the resulting processed elevation point data (xyz) and an interpolated digital elevation model (DEM). For further information regarding data collection and/or processing methods refer to previously published USGS Data Series (http://pubs.usgs.gov/ds/0921/ds921_data-aquisition.html).
