Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

This dataset,, consists of single-beam point data collected in June 2013 during a bathymetry survey of the Wilderness Breach and adjacent coastline that has been output in American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII) format. Scientists from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), in collaboration with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center (SPCMSC), conducted a bathymetric survey from June 22-26, 2013. The survey focused on a breach (Wilderness Breach) created by Hurricane Sandy near Pelican Island, NY, which is located in Great South Bay. A total of 41 shore-perpendicular transects with a 50-meter spacing were collected using a Knudsen 320BP single-beam echosounder, centered on the breach.
