ST. PETERSBURG, FL - CMPS faculty Steven Meyers and Mark Luther have published a peer-reviewed scientific study examining the effect of sea level
rise on 'tidal windows' in Tampa Bay, FL. The study found that conditions of slow
or near-zero currents required for some critical vessel maneuvers will increase with
water depth. The implications of these findings for vessel traffic and port management in the bay were also discussed.
