Figure 24. This figure shows a map of the Seawall Beach, Morse River, and Popham Beach in Phippsburg, Maine. The yellow line marks the November 2008 position of the last high tide swash line (elevation approximately 8 feet above mean lower low water) and serves as a contour to outline the spit as well as the berm edge along Seawall Beach. The blue line approximates the highest elevations on the beach spit where they could be mapped in November 4, 2008. The spit becomes very flat on the eastern end so a ridge could not be mapped. The red line is a June 7, 2007 shoreline survey along the seaward edge of the dune at Popham Beach State Park conducted by MGS. The base air photo is from August 23, 2005 and courtesy of the Maine Office of GIS and Seth Barker of the Maine Department of Marine Resources.
