    • Forecasting significant wave height in a coastal estuary 

      Lazarus, Steven M.; Splitt, Michael; Colvin, Jeff; Holman, Bryan; Weaver, Robert; Taeb, Peyman; Saberi, Atousa (2016-01-13)
      Would like to ‘extend’ the Nearshore Wave Prediction System (NWPS, Van Der Westhuysen et al. 2013) into a large narrow estuary (Indian River Lagoon, IRL). Full-blown hydrodynamic simulations
    • Forecasting wind setup in a coastal estuary 

      Colvin, Jeff; Lazarus, Steven; Splitt, Michael; Holman, Bryan P.; Weaver, Robert; Taeb, Peyman; Saberi, Atousa (2016-01-11)
      The Indian River Lagoon (IRL) is a long, narrow coastal estuary on Florida’s east coast (250 km long, less than 2 km in width in places) Wind Setup: Contributes to local flooding Increases the base water level to which ...
    • Measuring wind-driven wave properties in a coastal estuary 

      Colvin, Jeff; Lazarus, Steven M.; Splitt, Michael; Holman, Bryan (2016-01-11)
      The Indian River Lagoon (IRL) is a long, narrow coastal estuary on Florida’s east coast (250 km long, less than 2 km in width in places) Wind and Wave Measurements along the IRL: Sparse to non-existant! Difficult to ...
    • Onshore wind acceleration across the Indian River Lagoon 

      Al Sabri, Mohamed
      A study of the onshore (easterly) flow crossing the barrier island and Indian River Lagoon (IRL), in east central Florida, was conducted during the summer of 2015 in association with the DMES Field Projects. Wind observations ...
    • Radar ornithology in the River Lakes Conservation area 

      White, Annaleisa M.
      The River Lakes Conservation Area also known as St. Johns River (Upper Area) is a known habitat for migratory birds. The NEXRAD Radar was used to observe a population of migratory birds during the spring of 2015. A daily ...
    • Super-oceanic winds over a narrow coastal estuary in onshore flow events 

      Splitt, Michael; Lazarus, Steven M.; Colvin, Jeff; Holman, Bryan P. (2016-01-13)
      Indian River Lagoon Winds -- Shallow water estuary -- Average depth ~ 1 m -- Fetch limited except NNW/SSE -- Stretches 150 miles north/south -- Limited exchange with ocean via inlets -- Improvement of wind forcing ...
