Figure 11. A map illustrating the clockwise circulation gyre that moves sand east of the Fox Islands from Popham Beach to Hunnewell Beach and eventually the Kennebec River. The map also suggests some sand bypasses the Fox Islands, moving in a westerly direction, on the seaward side to come ashore in the vicinity of the Morse River. From Goldschmidt and others (1989).
