Figure 4. Georectified aerial photos taken on May 5, 2009,  Aug 26,2011 (Before Hurricane Irene) and Sept. 17, 2011 (After Hurricane Irene).  The sequence of photos revealed there was very little change to the locations of the crests of the bedforms during this major storm and suggests that tidal processes over longer time scales may be more effective in controlling shoal morphology than a single large wave event.
