Isabel Inlet

Three images are compiled to show the creation of Isabel Inlet after Hurricane Isabel in 2003. Students use these images to calculate the width of the new Isabel Inlet based on the scale of the map, to speculate about what happened to the sand that was once a part of the barrier island in the space where Isabel Inlet was formed, and to think about what would have happened if Isabel Inlet had been left open after Hurricane Isabel.
