Annual St. Lucie Inlet Monitoring and Data
Analysis, St. Lucie Inlet, Martin County, Florida
Annual bathymetric and
beach surveys of St. Lucie Inlet and its down-drift beaches were
performed and evaluated in accordance with the inlet management plan.
The bathymetric survey of the inlet was analyzed to evaluate the annual
bathymetric changes in the inlet and to monitor the infilling of the
impoundment basin. Additionally, the annual beach survey was analyzed to
monitor the accretion and erosion of the shoreline of the beach were the
dredged material was placed to determine the sand migration and the
impact that the nourished material is having on the hardbottom reefs
close to the shoreline. This was performed for Martin County under
contract with Atkins.
While employed at Baird
and Associates in Oakville, Ontario, Canada Ms. Quan worked on the
