Abstract: A focused data collection program was completed in support of a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers feasibility study of restoration alternatives for protecting and managing the habitat in Bolinas Lagoon. Measurements were made of several key physical processes that will allow the opportunity to advance the understanding of the existing conditions and the evolution of the lagoon. The project provided a unique opportunity to measure a variety of environmental variables employing several types of instruments and creative field methods.
