Aerial photographs of New Drum Inlet, Core Banks, North Carolina
Near vertical (top, middle) and low angle oblique (bottom) aerial photographs of New Drum Inlet, Core Banks, North Carolina. View looking northwest along the North Carolina shore. High waves and storm surge from Hurricane Joaquin reopened New Drum Inlet, transporting sand into Core Sound (green arrow) and reworking the shoals of the flood-tidal delta behind the inlet. The yellow arrows in each image point to the same feature. Near vertical images courtesy of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
