Figure 6. Oblique aerial photograph from 1987 showing shoal bypassing occurring, but farther offshore. The jetty causes the buildup of a sand bar that acts as a littoral barrier, and shoals must come around this barrier in order to migrate to Western Beach. Note the shoal locations off of Western Beach (image by S. Dickson, MGS, 9/4/1987).
