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.
