Excerpt
Excerpt: So? what?s gone with the wind in Florida Bay? It?s sea grass indirectly. Strong winds cause resuspension in this shallow bay and reduces light availability; it is believed the winds attribute to the sea grass die-off. The amount of wind stress required for resuspension to occur (critical wind stress) varies spatially, depending on the bottom type (less energy is needed to resuspend bare sandy bottom than vegetated bottom). Once resuspension occurs, settling time also varies depending on the type of sediments in the water column (e.g., silt settles slower than sand). The problem is, these variables are difficult and expensive to measure so they were often assumed as constants in resuspension modeling.
