Description This dataset defines the volume of sand along a 10-meter (m) wide profile between the seaward-most dune toe and the mean high water shoreline derived from light detection and ranging (lidar) digital elevation models (DEMs). Refer to Doran and others (2017) for more information about the source lidar data. These data support the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF)-funded project entitled “Monitoring Hurricane Sandy Beach and Marsh Resilience in New York and New Jersey” (NFWF project ID 2300.16.055110), for which the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center (SPCMSC) is using remotely-sensed data and targeted in-situ observations to monitor the post-restoration evolution of beaches, dunes, vegetative cover, and sediment budgets at seven post-Hurricane Sandy restoration sites in New York and New Jersey.
