Ebb scour channels resulting from hurricane Hugo are examined within a one-mile segment of Folly Island, South Carolina. Ebb scour channels are incised into sands and loosely consolidated materials by super-elevated water flowing downhill to the beach. They vary in length, width and depth as a function of the storm surge height, land elevation, area of drainage wind speed, direction, duration, and natural and man-made barriers.
