Abstract: There exist many shallow lagoons and lakes in Florida. With an average depth of 3 meters or less, circulation and transport within these water bodies are significantly influenced by the wind forcing. This paper discusses aspects of the circulation dynamics in (1) Choctawhatchee Bay, a small shallow bay in northwest Florida, (2) Indian River Lagoon, an elongated shallow lagoon along the Atlantic coast, and (3) Lake Okeechobee, a large shallow lake in south Florida.
