The passage spanned by 7-Mile Bridge is one of four predominant passages
in the Florida Keys which allow exchange of waters to the north and west of
the Keys (including Florida Bay and the Gulf of Mexico) with the Atlantic
waters of Hawk Channel and the Florida Keys Reef Tract to the south and east.
Moser Channel encompasses the deepest section of the passage at 7-Mile Bridge
and has an orientation perpendicular to the bridge. The other three Keys
passages important to the exchange of south Florida coastal waters are Long
Key Channel, Channel 5, and Channel 2.
Due to a cessation in funding, the South Florida Regional Observing System (SF-ROS)
and the AOML South Florida Program (SFP) are no longer able to support this station. We will reestablish
Moser Channel Monitoring Station should funding be restored.
