Shinnecock Inlet. April 22, 1997.April 22, 1997. The edge of the ebb shoal is clearly visible in this image, taken on a day with almost no waves and clear water. Water depth at the bar is about 3 m (10 ft). The dark water off the mouth of the inlet is the deposition basin. Both the ridge of sand that projects seaward from the west jetty and the deep hole to its west were measured by bathymetric surveys in the 1990's. (Photograph by Sidney B. Bowne & Son.)
