Current Deployment
Deployment Identifier:G006
Deployment Name:Florida Keys Coral Spawning
Deployment Sponsor:Mooers
Start Date:13-Aug-2006

The focus of the proposed research project is the study of the influence of winds, tidal currents, and mesoscale frontal variability as they relate to reef-scale advective/diffusive transport processes along the Upper Florida Keys reef tract. Specific interest resides in quantifying transport rates in relation to larval dispersion and retention following a mass coral spawning event by combining high-resolution coastal ocean simulations and in-situ observations.
