This dataset represents beach armor after Hurricane Sandy, including outfalls and proposed sites. These data are part of a broader project Inventory of Habitat Modifications to Tidal Inlets and Sandy Oceanfront Beaches in the U.S. Atlantic Coast Breeding Range of the Piping Plover (Charadrius melodus) as of 2015: Maine to North Carolina. The total length of oceanfront shoreline between Georgetown, ME, and the North Carolina-South Carolina boundary that has been armored is at least 476.81 miles (767.35 km; 27% of the total shoreline length). This assessment is a minimum number because some structures are buried and not visible in aerial imagery; in addition, historical records or inventories of hard stabilization...

This dataset represents beach scraping after Hurricane Sandy. These data are part of a broader project Inventory of Habitat Modifications to Tidal Inlets and Sandy Oceanfront Beaches in the U.S. Atlantic Coast Breeding Range of the Piping Plover (Charadrius melodus) as of 2015: Maine to North Carolina. Beach scraping modified sandy beach habitat in each of the states within the U.S. Atlantic Coast breeding range of the piping plover during the three years after Hurricane Sandy. The beaches of the Peconic Estuary of New York were the least modified by beach scraping, with only 0.02 miles (0.03 km) of sandy beach habitat modified by beach scraping between 2012 and 2015. Less than 1 mile (1.6 km) of sandy beach habitat...

This dataset represents tidal inlets before Hurricane Sandy from the "Beach and Tidal Inlet Habitat Inventories" project. Tidal inlets were located along the U.S. North Atlantic coast from Maine to Virginia using Google Earth imagery to identify inlets that were open prior to Hurricane Sandy in October 2012. The locations of historical inlets known to have been open in the past but closed at the time of Hurricane Sandy were identified through historical maps, literature and other sources. See the reports by T.M. Rice entitled "Inventory of Habitat Modifications to Tidal Inlets in the U.S. Atlantic Coast Breeding Range of the Piping Plover (Charadrius melodus) prior to Hurricane Sandy: South Shore of Long Island...

This dataset represents the locations and names of tidal inlets open along the North and Mid-Atlantic coast. The data are part of the "Inventory of Habitat Modifications to Tidal Inlets in the U.S. Atlantic Coast Breeding Range of the Piping Plover (Charadruis melodus) as of 2015: Maine to North Carolina" project. Tidal inlets were located and identified using imagery from Google Earth (2015 and early 2016), U.S. Geological Survey iCoast and the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Agricultural Imagery Program to identify inlets that were open in 2015. An inventory of the inlets was compiled with known habitat modifications recorded for each inlet using Microsoft Excel. Inlets that were historically open also...

This dataset is part of the Hard Shoreline Stabilization Structures on Sandy Beaches in the U.S. Atlantic Coast Breeding Range of the Piping Plover (Charadrius melodus) prior to Hurricane Sandy project.The data represent the approximate locations of hard shoreline stabilization structures along the U.S. North Atlantic coast from Maine through Virginia visible in Google Earth imagery at or before the time that Hurricane Sandy made landfall in October 2012. The hard shoreline stabilization structures were identified as part of an inventory of habitat modifications to sandy beach habitat within the U.S. Atlantic Coast breeding range of the federally-threatened piping plover. Hard shoreline stabilization structures...

This dataset represents North Atlantic beaches in 2015. The data are part of a larger project, Inventory of Habitat Modifications to Sandy Oceanfront Beaches in the U.S. Atlantic Coast Breeding Range of the Piping Plover (Charadrius melodus) as of 2015: Maine to North Carolina. As of 2015, 1,742.16 miles (2,803.73 kilometers [km]) of sandy shoreline was present between Georgetown, ME, and the North Carolina-South Carolina state boundary, with 1,650.68 miles (2,656.51 km) of sandy beach habitat present and 90.88 miles (146.26 km) where sandy beach habitat was absent seaward of hard stabilization structures, or armor. Massachusetts (458.40 miles or 737.72 km) and North Carolina (322.26 miles or 518.63 km) had the...
