As noted in the book Mitchell spent considerable effort studying the range, variation, and timing of the tides around the coast and especially on various positions inside and out of Katama (Cotamy) Bay. His inset graph comparing the tides inside and out served to bolster his explanation that the opening in the barrier beach was maintained by the tremendous erosive forces of the currents that sweep through that narrow channel, driven by the height differential of the water inside and outside the bay.

Aspects of the long-standing research by these two men are apparent in the details and insets of this 1871 map. From Whiting these include the light tracing of the position of the southern opening of Katama Bay (1776, 1846, 1856) and vertical cross-sections of the barrier beach that seals the bay along with comparative cross-sections from the barrier beach at the Nantucket haulover and at Scituate on Cape Cod. Whiting’s papers reference the tremendous erosion and movement of material from the beach out into the bay and beyond and so he feasibly collaborated with Mitchell to produce the inset depicting the Section (AB) running from Chappaquiddick Point to the West Shore. Note also how the topographical survey is tied into the location and elevation, above sea level, of the Martha’s Vineyard National Bank.
