Strong Mid-Depth Currents and a Deep Cyclonic Gyre in the Gulf of Mexico

Description: This report is about the exploration of the possibility that the deep flow around the edges of the Gulf circulates in a cyclonic, or counter-clockwise direction. The existence of this flow was purely theoretical but this study shows that such is observed reliably.

GoMRC Website ‘Meta-analysis Report: Land-use and submerged aquatic vegetation change in the Gulf of Mexico’

Description: Over the past century, health and spatial extent of seagrasses has decreased dramatically in the Gulf of Mexico. While some of the changes can be explained by direct impacts to the seagrass beds, we hypothesize that changes in the land use in the watersheds can also be correlated with the decline of seagrasses. Through this meta-analysis, we researched historical and compared trends in seagrass populations and land use in five bays and their watersheds within the Gulf of Mexico: Mobile Bay, Perdido Bay, Tampa Bay, Charlotte Harbor, and Galveston Bay. Using both historical records and spatial datasets, we examined land use and seagrass trends in these five areas.
