Abstract:

In order to provide information on channel location and configuration and assist in planning of dredging operation, the geometry of Fire Island Inlet, New York, is analyzed. Using the 18 sets of aerial photographs taken between April 1962 and April 1972, the locations of shoals, beaches, and channels were determined, digitized for computer analysis, and displayed on drum plots. One of two channel locations proposed by the New York District is considered more appropriate in terms of matching the average channel location. Author
