Abstract

Tangier Island, in Accomack County, Virginia, is the southernmost of a series of islands separating Chesapeake Bay from Tangier and Pocomoke Sounds (Figure 1) . With the exception of three sand ridges, which are the populated areas, the island is low lying marsh and tidal flat deposits with elevations generally below 6 feet (MLW datum).
