Detailed Description

Oblique aerial photographs of Westhampton Beach, New York. View looking north along the Long Island shore. The beach here shows evidence of downdrift erosion (green arrow) where the beach is narrower on one side of the groin. Alongshore processes are typically driven by long-term sediment transport, rather than storm-induced waves and water levels. The yellow arrow in each image points to the same feature.
