The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers contracted a beach survey of Fire Island, New York from September 17-October 6, 2013 for the purpose of planning of a beach reconstruction project following Hurricane Sandy. This dataset contains elevation data of subaerial morphology and nearshore bathymetry collected using real time kinematic global positioning system (RTK-GPS) and hydrography techniques. The data were provided to the U.S. Geological survey to contribute to an existing monitoring dataset of the beach and dune morphology at Fire Island.
