Dr. Charles Flagg took another flight over the Breach at Old Inlet on Fire Island on June 11, 2017.  The flyover mosaic is available below.  Dr. Flagg’s latest report on the status of the breach is now online.  He notes, among other details, that “there has been a lot of sand deposited in the breach over the past year and a half leading to thoughts of closure.  It unclear whether that is happening as things seem stable in the Bay at this time.”

Mark Lang has assembled all the geo-referenced photo mosaics into a kml file that can be viewed using Google Earth.  By clicking between images and using the fade in-out button you can clearly see how the inlet is changing with time.  An offline version of the KML file is available as KMZ.
