The purpose of this procedure is to identify the best practices for measuring and quantifying the size of Sargassum wracks, or piles of beached “seaweed” as it is often referred to, found along the coastlines surrounding the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean islands. This method was utilized by graduate and undergraduate students from Texas A&M University Galveston Campus (TAMUG) during the historical 2015 Sargassum season in Galveston, Texas.....
