Project Start Date: 2007 End Date: 2010

Recent Funding: (FY08) USGS GE PES, SFWMD, (FY07) USGS GE PES, SFWMD


Summary

The objective of this cooperative effort is to describe the hydrodynamic characteristics and the temporal and spatial salinity variability of creeks and estuaries within the Ten Thousand Islands area; and help define circulation and salinity patterns related to prominent physical boundaries.

Cooperating agency SFWMD

The objective of this SFWMD/USGS cooperative effort is to: (1) describe the hydrodynamic characteristics and the temporal and spatial salinity variability of creeks and estuaries within the Ten Thousand Islands area; and (2) help define circulation and salinity patterns related to prominent physical boundaries, which are generally composed of mud flats, ridges, and oyster beds. Data collection will be conducted over 3 years to capture a representative range of seasonal conditions and extreme events. It is a goal of this project to collect data supportive of these objectives, which can also populate hydrodynamic/salinity models and statistical analyis.
