Detailed Description

Oblique aerial photographs of Chandeleur Islands. The yellow arrow in each image points to the same feature. The view is looking west from over the Gulf of Mexico across the sandy oil-protection berm and/or island to a vegetated remnant part of the Chandeleur Islands (arrow). The sand berm-like feature seaward of the island remnant appears to have been completely eroded, leaving a shoal area where wave breaking is discernible (white lines). Some of these apparent changes may be due to water level differences between the times of the two acquisitions. Comparisons of pre- and post-storm elevation data will allow accurate vertical comparisons.
