Using wave runup modeling to inform sea turtle nest relocation

Published on by Matthew Ware
The objective of this project was to develop and test a model to predict locations of sea turtle nest wash-over in an effort to minimize unnecessary nest manipulation. To accomplish this, we used a series of historical LiDAR layers, time-averaged digital elevation models, and in situ monitoring. This project was a collaboration between the Florida State University Marine Turtle Research, Ecology, and Conservation Group, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the U.S. Geological Survey, and a citizen-science volunteer group Share the Beach.
