Starting in October of 2014, data along the breach located in the Otis Pike National High Dune Wilderness Area was collected to monitor the breach opening. The USGS is continuing to monitor the beaches, dunes and breach to evaluate how much of the sand removed by Hurricane Sandy returns to the beach via natural beach-building processes.
