Beach profiles for Fire Island 1969, 2999, and 2009

Detailed Description

 

The profiles along western and central Fire Island show minimal change and in some cases the dune system is growing seaward (Profiles a-d). In contrast, on the eastern side of the island where there is documented historical and recent inlet formation and extensive bayside marsh development, there is substantial landward translation of the dune–beach profile over time (Profile e).
