SCCWRP PERSPECTIVE
• Problems/issues
• Operational implications
PROBLEMS/ISSUES
• Stormwater contaminants
– Where do they settle
– Coastal zone mass balance
• Shoreline bacteria
– Forecasts of water quality
– Hindcasts of what caused problems (trajectory hindcasting)
– Modeling of offshore vs. nearshore transport
• POTW plumes
– Stratification depth/strength
– Interaction/separation from stormwater plumes
• Marine debris
– Where does it come from
– Where does it go
• Algal blooms
– Don’t know much
– Need frequent measurements
OPERATIONAL
• Not just surface currents
– Necessary but not sufficient
• Greater nearshore focus
• Need sensors
– Biology/chemistry is where the action is
• Need to integrate with existing programs
– Bight’03 is a great opportunity
