Administration, F. A. (n.d.). Section 1.0 Wallops Flight Facility Range Capabilities. Retrieved from

Excerpt: The Wallops Flight Facility (WFF) is located on Virginia?s Eastern Shore at Wallops Island, Virginia. The northern border of the WFF launch site is the Chincoteague Inlet, which separates Wallops Island from the Chincoteague and Assateague Islands. These islands contain the town of Chincoteague, located about 3.9 NM from the launch site with a population of around 2,000, the Assateague National Seashore operated by the National Park Service, and a National Wildlife Refuge operated by the Fish and Wildlife Service. On both the east and south, the launch site is bounded by the Atlantic Ocean. On the west, it is adjacent to the Bogues, Powells, and Watts Bays, salt water marshes, and agricultural land. In addition, the sparsely populated towns of Assawoman and Atlantic, with populations of roughly 150 and 325 respectively, are located approximately 3.2 NM from the launch site, and Pocomoke City, MD, with a population of 4,000, is situated approximately 13 NM northwest.
