Figure 27, weighted potential flux for all scenarios.
Figure 27. Weighted surf-zone integrated alongshore potential flux (table 2, metric 8), indicating the average potential flux in the northern Gulf of Mexico alongshore Alabama and Florida from April 2010 to August 2012 for 2.5-centimeter surface residual balls (SRBs; table 1) using a midrange estimate of critical stress. There is a convergence in the probable flux at Pensacola Pass, Fla., and divergence toward the east of Pensacola Pass.
