From the Preface: 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 presenting a compilation of all existing data pertinent to the shores and shore processes in a particular region. Three components of the re gional studies are geomorphology (Chapter I), littoral materials (Chapter II), and littoral forces (Chapter III). This report presents data on the littoral materials of the selected coastal reach. The geomorphology for this reach has been presented in a separate report. A portion of the littoral forces chapter has been published as Beach Erosion Board Technical Memorandum No. 55. This report treats, in broad scope, the materials which are present and have influenced the development of the south shore of Long Island. The data have been compiled, in the main, from sources within the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, but their arrangement herein is the responsibility of the author.
