Erosion and beach replacement for Shinnecock Inlet
These images are among photographs of Shinnecock Inlet assembled by Andrew Morang (Coastal Inlets Research Program, USACE). They illustrate creation of the inlet in the 1938 hurricane, and the effect of adding dredged sand to the beach west of the inlet in 1998.
