Shinnecock Inlet. September 29, 1992. September 29, 1992. In this image, the east beach has advanced almost to the end of the east jetty, while the west beach has receded severely. Part of the west beach is less than 20-30 m-wide. The east revetment within the inlet has deteriorated, accompanied with erosion of east shore. Jetty repair has begun, and a barge containing rock is moored in the east channel in Shinnecock Bay. In the flood shoal, the exposed T-shaped sand bar has moved and changed shape.
