Description This dataset, 20130626_bathy_DEM.zip, contains a 1-meter (m) grid of June 2013 bathymetry of the breach channel, ebb shoal, and adjacent coast of the Fire Island Wilderness Breach. Scientists from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), in collaboration with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center (SPCMSC), conducted a bathymetric survey from June 22-26, 2013. The survey focused on a breach (Wilderness Breach) created by Hurricane Sandy near Pelican Island, NY, which is located in Great South Bay. A total of 41 shore-perpendicular transects with a 50-meter spacing were collected using a Knudsen 320BP single-beam echosounder, centered on the breach. [More]
