Aerial photographs of Camp Lejeune, North Carolina

Detailed Description

Near vertical (top, middle) and low angle oblique (bottom) aerial photographs of Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. View looking northwest along the North Carolina shore. Waves and surge from Hurricane Joaquin eroded the beach, causing significant shoreline retreat and a narrower beach. An overwash channel was reactivated, moving sand inland (green arrow) burying the marsh. The yellow arrows in each image point to the same feature.
