U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientist Jeff Williams (Woods Hole, MA) was invited to a Department of the Interior (DOI) meeting held December 14, 2004, to present the results of his review committee's work on a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) storm-surge-modeling effort for the south shore of Long Island. The committee members were contracted by the USACE to assist in reviewing coastal-geology and coastal-engineering data relating to the USACE's renourishment project from Fire Island to Montauk Point, NY, a stretch of coast that includes the National Park Service (NPS) Fire Island National Seashore. Although the official results will be released by the USACE, Jeff agreed to present the results of the review process and the recommendations the committee set forth to the USACE. All of the participants are grateful for the collaborative work between the USGS, the USACE, and the NPS.
