Abstract: Scour monitoring instruments were installed on two bridges spanning tidal inlets in Florida as part of a research project to develop scour instrumentation. Previous prototype installations were located at inland riverine sites at various locations across the country. The Florida test sites were selected in order to evaluate instrument performance in a marine environment, where salt water, corrosion, barnacles and other aspects of marine life can create new, and sometimes more severe environmental conditions.
