A numerical model was developed to describe the currents, residence times, salinity patterns, and larval transport in a South Florida lagoonal system. Model forcing included tides, wind, and freshwater inflows prescribed from 4 yrs of recorded observations. Physical and biological performance tests were applied to two hindcasts. Computed tidal currents agreed with observations to within 0.01 m s. Transports in ocean inlets explained 87% of observed variance over a 45-d period. The average… CONTINUE READING
