New River Inlet Plume

Here are some photographs of the New River Inlet plume that were taken during the morning low tide on Wednesday, May 2 (low tide was 10:49 EDT) form the APL-UW Cessna 172. These photographs were taken between 10:30 and 11:00 EDT. Multiple lobes of the plume may indicate flow through different channels in the inlet. A secondary plume characterized by a darker color (e.g., forth photograph) was visible during this time, possibly indicating a source of sediment from further upstream.
