Project Description

This planning-level project will develop an automated, very high resolution nowcast/forecast system for the currents and waves of Tampa Bay and vicinity. It will be implemented and made available to the public and to resource and emergency managers. These data will be extremely useful for ecological studies and for coastal protection and restoration projects. The information from this system will apply to several future activities as listed below and to 31 CFR Part 34.201 eligible activity (a), restoration and protection of natural resources, ecosystems, fisheries, marine and wildlife habitats, beaches, and coastal wetlands of the Gulf Coast Region.
