Detailed Description

Oblique aerial photographs of Assateague Island National Seashore, Maryland. View looking west along Assateague Island. Standing water behind the dunes (green arrow) is often an indication that the beach has been inundated. At this location, however, there is no dune scarp or overwash fan that would indicate that the waves and surge from Joaquin reached the base or crest of the dune. The standing water seen in the post-storm image is likely from heavy rainfall. The yellow arrow in each image points to the same feature.
