Aerial photographs of Hatteras, North Carolina

Detailed Description

Near vertical (top, middle) and low angle oblique (bottom) aerial photographs of Hatteras, North Carolina. View looking north along the North Carolina shore. Waves and surge from Hurricane Joaquin eroded the beach, causing significant shoreline retreat and a narrower beach at the location of the Hurricane Isabel breach in 2003 (green arrow). The yellow arrows in each image point to the same feature. Near vertical images courtesy of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
