Lazarus, Steven M.
MetadataShow full item record
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 validate model output Harder to understand physical processes that affect the lagoon due to lack of observations Erosion & transport of nutrients and sediments Seagrass beds Oyster habitats Is there a cost effective way to gain more obs?
