From the Preface: The regional studies are a part of the General Investigations program of the Beach Erosion Board and are designed to simplify and expedite the solution of local problems by giving a compilation of all existing data pertinent to shores and shore processes in a particular region. Three components of the regional studies are geomorphology (Chapter I). littoral materials (Chapter II). and littoral forces (Chapter III). This report presents the geomorphology of the selected coastal compartment. The littoral materials chapter for this compartment will be reported separately and a portion of the littoral forces chapter has been published in Beach Erosion Board Technical Memorandum No. 55. This report treats, in broad scope, the geologic factors which have influenced the development of the south shore of Long Island to date. The interpretation of geologic events has been drawn from the works of many authors while the history of shore line changes and inlet migration has been compiled mainly from United States Coasst and Geodetic Survey and Corps of Engineers data.
