Bays That Aren't Bays


Author(s):
Abstract:
Stretching across the Atlantic Coastal Plain from Florida to New Jersey are around 500,000 elliptical depressions known as Carolina bays. Over half of them are found in eastern Carolina. The bays are a land feature that exist nowhere else in the world. No one knows how they were formed. Some have water; others are dry. Lake Waccamaw is the largest of the bays, being about five miles long.
