Coral Ecosystem Connectivity from Pulley Ridge to the Florida Keys: Simulated Current Velocity and Temperature from Hydrodynamic Modeling (NCEI Accession 0178799)

This dataset provides current velocity and temperature computed by a high-resolution (1/100 degree) hydrodynamic model around the study area, extending to include the full Florida Straits and coastal areas between South Florida, northern Cuba and the eastern Bahamas. The “Florida Straits, South Florida and Florida Keys” (FKEYS) model is nested within a data-assimilative coarser (1/25 degree) model of the Gulf of Mexico (GoM) and receives daily updated variability of the deep ocean currents. The high-resolution FKEYS model provides details in circulation among the South Florida reef ecosystems, while enabling the study of regional connectivity due to the nesting with the GoM model.
