Abstract:

The coastal benthic boundary layer CBBL research program is a 5-year Office of Naval Research study that addresses the physical characterization and modeling of benthic boundary layer processes and the impact of these processes on seafloor structure, properties, and behavior. The lower Florida Keys, specifically the Dry Tortugas and Marquesas Keys, were selected as experimentsites totestthe CBBL hypotheses and provide dataforcomprehensive modeling efforts. Aworkshop was held to provide a forum for initial research results and to define the models that relate the controlling geologic processes and observed sediment behavior. This report contains the extended abstracts from this workshop.
