14). , 2012). A prominent feature of the Atlantic Coast from Long Island to Florida is the presence of numerous long, narrow barrier islands and spits oriented parallel to the mainland. Both are similar in their appearance, sediment dynamics, and environmental issues, except that spits are peninsulas attached at one end to the mainland. 13) sits on Long Beach, one such barrier island. 15). A barrier island separates the open ocean from a lagoon (here the Great South Bay), on the other side of which sits the mainland.
2002).

Hurricane Sandy struck coastal New York and New Jersey in 2012 while it was in its posttropical cyclone phase, having migrated northward from its tropical zone of origin retaining tremendous strength. , 2013). 15). It remained open in 2013, noticeably improving water quality in the lagoon due to increased water circulation (Foderaro, 2013).
Two of the parameters routinely measured during landfill monitoring (as well as more gener ally in other environmental investigations) are biological oxygen demand (BOD) and chemical oxygen demand (COD). The aerobic phase is characterized by a relatively high BOD/ COD ratio. Once the available oxygen has been consumed, the anaerobic degradation phase begins, favoring methanogenic bacteria. , 2006). Microbial methane accumulations may be hazardous, but the gas can be with drawn via wells in the landfill and beneficially used as fuel.
