Net shoreline change due to Hurricane Sandy

net shoreline change and dune toe change (NSM) from Hurricane Sandy along western Fire Island

Detailed Description

Results from field surveys of net shoreline change and dune toe change (NSM) from Hurricane Sandy along western Fire Island. The locations of the cross-shore profiles are shown in red. The gray boxes on the plot are areas where the dunes were overwashed. The gain in the shoreline is due to rapid recovery of the lowest portion of the beach in the days following the storm (Photo: NOAA, 2012).
