OLD INLET BREACH FLYOVER 2017-10-20

Dr. Charles Flagg took another flight over the Breach at Old Inlet on Fire Island on October 20, 2017.  The flyover mosaic is available below.  Dr. Flagg noted that there are major changes to the inlet:

The arrival of the remnant of Hurricane Jose and the subsequent re-adjustment of the breach have caused significant changes over the past month as described in the Inlet Report.

Mark Lang has assembled all the geo-referenced photo mosaics into a kml file that can be viewed using Google Earth.  By clicking between images and using the fade in-out button you can clearly see how the inlet is changing with time.  An offline version of the KML file is available as KMZ. The full size image is also available.
