Response of Florida Shelf Ecosystems to Climate Change

Video from 2001 Perpendicular-to-Shore Transects

Shore perpendicular video tracklines were performed along the DEP monuments within the study area. Intermediate shore-perpendicular lines were surveyed within areas of probable hardbottom impact. Transects were run east from a point no less than 50 feet west of the sand/hardbottom interface to a point a least 500 feet seaward of the predicted equilibrium toe of fill to show transitions in benthic community types from nearshore to offshore. A video camera was mounted on the helmet of the towed diver to obtain high resolution imagery of the benthic communities positioned directly below the diver. This video was linked to the GPS system and produced real time coordinates on the video.
