Swath bathymetry collected offshore of Fire Island and western Long Island, New York in 2014, U.S. Geological Field Activity 2014-072-FA

October 8, 2015

Swath bathymetric data were collected offshore of Fire Island and western Long Island, New York in 2014 as a part of a collaborative effort between the U.S. Army Corps and USGS to assess the impact of Hurricane Sandy on this coastal region. These data were compared to swath bathymetric data collected by the USGS in the same area in 2011 to evaluate any modifications to the inner continental shelf, such as migration of bedforms, extensive erosion or deposition.
