...S. J MAZZULLO Abstract Scour marks formed by storm rollers were observed on Fire Island, New York. The eventual movement of the storm rollers onto the beach and the resulting formation of scour marks are attributed to storm-generated currents and waves. The comparison of these features to similar...
