Project Description

An ongoing project at the Horn Point Laboratory focuses on understanding hydrodynamically-mediated processes in seagrass habitats around the world. The wave parameters in these studies are quantified using four Coastal MacroWaves. More examples of some of the labís previous projects involving MacroWaves can be found in the publications listed below.  Some other current projects include the evaluation of coastal structures such as breakwaters as benefits or detriments to seagrasses.
