Temperature, salinity and fluorometry profile data from CTD casts from the west Florida shelf during the ECOHAB program, 1998-1999 (NODC Accession 0000540)

The USF, College of Marine Science, Ocean Circulation Group under the direction of Dr. R.H. Weisberg is maintaining an array of moored instruments on the west Florida shelf for in-situ measurements of currents, temperature, salinity, surface meteorology, and sea level. Our field work also includes participation in monthly hydrographic cruises. In addition to the field work we are running numerical ocean circulation model experiments on the west Florida shelf in collaboration with the biological modeling group headed by Dr. J. Walsh.

Purpose: The physical oceanography portion of the ECOHAB Florida Program is directed at describing and understanding the role of the west Florida shelf circulation in the generation, maintenance, and dissipation of red tide blooms.

Supplemental Information
ECOHAB (ECology and Oceanography of Harmful Algal Blooms) is
a scientific program designed to increase understanding of
the fundamental processes underlying the impacts and
population dynamics of HABs. This program addresses the many
factors at organismal, population, community, and ecosystem
levels that determine how HAB species respond to, and
potentially alter their environment, the manner in which HAB
species affect food-web and community interactions. The
program is based on the results of a workshop co-sponsored
by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
and National Science Foundation (NSF) and currently receives
funding from several federal partners including NOAA, NSF,
the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA).
