Abstract

The Loxahatchee River estuary in southeast Florida has periodically closed and opened to the sea as a result of natural causes. In the last 30 years, the estuary has remained open only by dredging. Activities of man in the estuary and basin affect freshwater and tidal flow which in turn affect bathymetry, bottom sediment, and biota. Under present conditions, tidal flow is much larger than freshwater inflow. (USGS)
