To determine the change Hurricane Sandy caused to 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 May 6 to 20, 2015. The objectives of the data collection were to map the morphology of the shoreface and the wilderness breach as part of the USGS Hurricane Sandy Supplemental Project GS2-2B. This dataset, 201505_Shoreface_DEM.zip, consists of a 100-m cell size, interpolated Digital Elevation Model (DEM) of the Fire Island shoreface.
