Oceanographic time-series measurements made by the U.S. Geological Survey between 1975 and the present as part of research programs. The data were collected to address specific research questions and were primarily collected over durations less than a year, using stationary platforms, with sensors near the sea floor. These data have been used to study of ocean dynamics and to validate ocean models
Matanzas is a natural, unstabilized inlet, which makes it an ideal location to study dynamic inlet processes in a non-maintained channel.
