Greater Everglades science continues to be a foundation element for Everglades restoration and management. Building on the successful Greater Everglades Ecosystem Restoration (GEER) conferences in 2015 and before, GEER 2017 will address the most pressing and complex science issues that we face now and into the future of restoration - a future that includes climate change, threats from invasive species, altered hydrology, development pressure, and degraded water quality. Visit the GEER 2017 conference website for more information.

Aquatic Cycling of Mercury in the Everglades (ACME)
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) are pleased to announce the completion and posting of the Aquatic Cycling of Mercury in the Everglades (ACME) database.
This database comprises data from all ACME researchers, now sited in one central data set (presently, 61 parameters and 281 sites) to promote its use by interested stakeholders.
Welcome to the South Florida Information Access (SOFIA) Website. South Florida is one of several study areas within USGS Priority Ecosystems Science (PES; formerly "Place-Based Studies"). PES was established to enable the USGS to enhance its scientific assistance to resource managers who require an improved scientific information base to resolve or prevent complex resource conflicts or environmental problems in specific ecosystem sites.
For an overview of the website, either search the site for specific words or topics, or visit the "About SOFIA" page. Access information on projects by title, investigator, or by region. The data exchange site contains data related to all of the projects. The publications database that contains Open File Reports, Fact Sheets, and other publications for our projects.
