Abstract

Objectives of this study are to study the effects of the dynamic system off Cape San BIas on its unique group of nesting sea turtles and foraging shorebirds, including : 1. changes in beach topography, 2. changes in offshore topography, 3. current flows and direction, 4. tidal patterns, 5. sand composition and origin, 6. sea turtle nesting pattern, 7. structure of the sea turtle group nesting along EAFB on Cape San BIas, 8. shorebird prey availability along an accreting and eroding beach, and 9. effects of beach driving on shorebird prey availability.
