To determine the change Hurricane Sandy caused in the shoreface morphology and breach evolution at Fire Island, New York, USA, scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center (SPCMSC) conducted a bathymetric survey of Fire Island from October 5 to 10, 2014. The objectives of the data collection effort were to map the morphology of the wilderness breach and adjacent shoreface, Fire Island Inlet, Narrow Bay, and Great South Bay east of Nicoll Bay the shoreface as part of the USGS Hurricane Sandy Supplemental Project GS2-2B. This dataset, Wilderness_Breach_DEM.zip, consists of single-beam elevation and ground-based data collected with personal watercraft (PWC) and backpack GPS within the wilderness breach.
