List of Figures

Figure 1, Map of study sites off Fire Island, New York Figure 1. U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) study sites off Fire Island, New York, positioned from January to April 2012 both along the ridge crest and across the crests and troughs of the ridge system. Bathymetry is shown in meters (m). National Park Service (NPS) managed land, state and county parks, private communities and wilderness areas on the barrier islands are marked.
