Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Field Trip Guidebooks Series, Volume 219.

The more than 4,000 km of barrier islands along the U.S. Atlantic coast and Gulf of Mexico comprise one of the largest, most diverse and most studied coastal barrier chains in the world. Within this chain, the coastal compartment from Delaware Bay to Chesapeake Bay offers superb examples of a variety of coastal and nearshore environments and shoreline features.
