STUART, Fl. October 30, 2018 - CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. (CSA), a leading global marine environmental science consulting firm, announced the completion of a survey to collect data for hydrodynamic model calibration and verification in Nassau Sound, located north of Jacksonville, Florida. The CSA team measured inshore and offshore water level, tides, current and waves to calibrate and validate a hydrodynamic model. The team installed water level recorders and a wave-enabled Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) and conducted an estuarine water discharge survey to gather the needed data.

The project was contracted and managed by Olsen Associates, Inc. (Olsen), an industry leader in coastal engineering and experts in beach restoration projects.
