Summary

The U.S. Geological Survey is studying the wind sheltering effects of vegetation in the Florida Everglades. In order to test both the flow resistance and wind sheltering effects of sawgrass, uniform dense stands of sawgrass were grown in a tilting flume at Stennis Space Center, Mississippi. In June, 1997, one end of the flume was covered with a wind cowling with a removable top, and a series of experiments were conducted between June, 1997 and July, 1998. During each set of experiments, the sawgrass was sampled for vegetative characteristics, biomass, and leaf area index. The results of the analyses of the vegetation samples are summarized in a series of appendixes.
