Figure 25, surf-zone integrated alongshore potential flux.
Figure 25. Surf-zone integrated alongshore potential flux smoothed over 2 kilometers (table 2, metric 6) for 2.5-centimeter surface residual balls (SRBs; table 1) in the northern Gulf of Mexico alongshore Alabama and Florida for scenarios A, H3_D6 and B, H4_D6. Because of the limited mobility in A (fig. 23), there is virtually no potential flux, whereas there is westward potential flux throughout the domain in B. Areas where the magnitude of the flow decreases (B, inset) are more likely areas of SRB deposition.
