Project Details

The project focuses on improving the understanding of water quality in Bangs Lake, a region effected by recurrent phosphate spills from an adjacent chemical plant. Dr. Dzwonkowski’s component of the project focuses on accurately describing circulation and dispersion processes in a shallow salt marsh system. This experiment involved tracking of a dye release, deployment of a short-term moorings (ADCP, CTDs, and ADVs), and the release of surface drifters.

This project is involved in an interdisciplinary, multi-institution research collaboration in National Estuarine Research Reserve System (NERRS) Grand Bay.
