Fugate, David (Ph.D.)
Dr Fugate's interest in sediment transport and hydrodynamics in estuaries spans physical, morphological and ecological aspects of the environment. Current research includes analyzing the dynamics of the turbidity maximum in the Calooshatchee River, FL, and the relative importance of freshwater discharge and tidal energy to vertical mixing and hypoxia in the river. Other research interests include the hydrodynamics and associated sediment transport around sea grass beds and particulate flux of phosphorus in storm treatment areas.
