FAU Harbor Branch Indian River Lagoon Observatory

LOBO 0035

The Indian River Lagoon is situated along 156 miles of Florida coast. The Indian River Lagoon Observatory (IRLO) Program was established by FAU's Harbor Branch to facilitate research as a long-term, multi-disciplinary, ecosystem-based approach to monitoring and studying one of Florida's most significant assets.

The Land/Ocean Biogeochemical Observatory (LOBO) network enables researchers to follow environmental changes in the IRL, assist resource and planning managers to make informed decisions, model and correlate environmental data to biological, chemical and physical phenomena, and contribute to education and public outreach on the lagoon. LOBO 1 is located in the IRL near the mouth of the Harbor Branch Channel (Link Port).
