The Indian River Lagoon (IRL), a micro-tidal subtropical estuary on the east coast of central Florida, is strongly influenced by freshwater flows from a water shed defined by the Florida canal system. A clear understanding of the response of this estuary to strong and episodic inflows of freshwater is required to manage the impacts of these events on the estuarine ecosystem and associated habitats. Empirical orthogonal function (EOF) analysis was used to examine the relations among various… CONTINUE READING
