  • Transmission meta-analysis provided important SCTLD ecology data: ~44% transmission, ~10 days after exposure.
  • Epidemio-hydrodynamic modeling can explain the transmission of SCTLD among reefs; neutrally buoyant particles in barotropic currents are the most likely mode of transport for disease agents.
  • If SCTLD came from another location to Virginia Key, most particles come from the South, but our model suggest that particles released immediately north could also have affected the area during the modeled time period.
