PNG Images of chirp sub-bottom profiler data collected by the U.S. Geological Survey offshore of Fire Island, NY in 2011 (PNG Image Format)

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) mapped approximately 336 square kilometers of the lower shoreface and inner-continental shelf offshore of Fire Island, New York in 2011 using interferometric sonar and high-resolution chirp seismic-reflection systems. These spatial data support research on the Quaternary evolution of the Fire Island coastal system and provide baseline information for research on coastal processes along southern Long Island.
