Oblique aerial photographs of Dauphin Island

Sand overwash deposits extend onto the road and farther in lobes toward the bayside of the island.

Detailed Description

Oblique aerial photographs of Dauphin Island. The yellow arrow in each image points to the same feature. The view is looking west along Dauphin Island toward an inlet cut during Hurricane Katrina (Katrina Cut). The Gulf of Mexico is to the left. The linear rock structure that closes the Cut can be seen in the distance. Sand overwash deposits extend onto the road and farther in lobes toward the bayside of the island. Much of this overwash seems funneled through breaks in what appears to be human-made dunes.
