Southeast Florida Shelf Circulation and Volume Exchange, Observations of km-scale Variability
Entry ID: RSMAS_BH001_BH002

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Tides, wind and the Florida Current affect the dynamics of the South Florida
continental shelf over a range of scales. Two field experiments in the winter
(LARGO1) and summer (LARGO2) employed a high-frequency (HF) Ocean Surface
Current Radar (OSCR), moored current meters and a boat-mounted Acoustic Doppler
Current Profiler (ADCP) to study the circulation over the southeast Florida
Shelf. The OSCR ... View entire text
