Second Dye Release

We conducted our second dye release on February 1, 2023. We began the dye release at 8am, with the dye input at a slightly adjusted location due to quite a bit of cobble infill on the North side of the mouth. Initially, the dye-filled plume was trapped inside the surfzone and transited south. However after less than a half hour, a large plume to the north of the estuary mouth began escaping likely due to a rip current. We also saw a fairly consistent surfzone escape due to a hypothesized rip current roughly 500m south of the estuary mouth. Once again, a fantastic turnout of volunteers helped make the day a great success! One dye release remains. The included photo shows snapshots from our FLIR camera.
