St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands-Seafloor elevation change in Maui, St. Croix, St. Thomas, and the Florida Keys

Coral reefs serve as natural barriers that protect adjacent shorelines from coastal hazards such as storms, waves and erosion but projections indicate global degradation of coral reefs due to anthropogenic impacts and climate change will cause a transition to net erosion by mid-century. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center conducted research to

Acidification and Increasing CO2 Flux Associated with Five, Springs Coast, Florida Springs (1991-2014)

Scientists from the South West Florida Management District (SWFWMD) acquired and analyzed over 20 years of seasonally-sampled hydrochemical data from five first-order-magnitude (springs that discharge 2.83 m3 s-1 or more) coastal springs located in west-central Florida. These data were subsequently obtained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) for further analyses and interpretation.

Storm-Impact Scenario XBeach Model Results – Scenario 12 Digital Elevation Model (DEM) Grid

The numerical model XBeach (version 4937) was used to investigate how different storm scenarios impact the sediment berm constructed offshore of the Chandeleur Islands and adjacent areas. The XBeach model solves coupled 2-dimensional, horizontal wave propagation equations to predict flow, sediment transport, and bottom changes for varying spectral wave and flow boundary conditions (Ro
