Figure 5. Image of north end of Hog Island, Virginia, an area of accretion during historic times. Swales between the dune ridge contain marshes dominated by salt-tolerant Spartina sp., which indicate frequent inundation by the ocean during storms. Dune sands contain small amounts of fresh groundwater. North is to the right. (photo taken May 23, 2009, obtained at Google Earth, 18S 441165 E, 4145454 N).
