Hydrodynamic and Salinity Characteristics of Rivers and Estuaries of the Ten Thousand Islands
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.
