During Superstorm Sandy, a uniquely large dataset of cyclonic precipitation isotopic composition was assembled through a crowdsourcing approach and used to assess the spatio-temporal evolution of the storm. A broad overview of the precipitation collection locations, analysis methodology, and storm-wide spatio-temporal isotope patterns is presented in Good et al. (2014). Of particular interest within this dataset are four sites at which highfrequency collections of precipitation were conducted.

Additional research, such as an ordinary least squares regression, is recommended to determine the degree to which nourishment alone attenuated damage, which is currently unknown. 1 INTRODUCTION When Hurricane Sandy slammed into New Jersey on October 29, 2012, it produced a major-to-record storm surge along much of the New Jersey coast due, in part, to the fact that landfall occurred near the time of astronomical high tide.
