Abstract

The southernmost stable dune of the “Walking Dune” system at Napeague, New York (Dune 1 in Figure 1) is being studied to gain further insight into its morphology, evolution and interactions with the underlying glacial topography. Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) was used to map out the dune’s internal structural development, and its position in relation the underlying topography. This was augmented by aerial, Digital Elevation Mapping (DEM), and satellite images using Geographical Information Systems.
