Summary

The goal of this project is to calculate water discharge into Florida Bay.

For more information, please see the Coastal Gradients of Flow, Salinity and Nutrients, Hydrologic Monitoring in Joe Bay, Southwest Florida Coastal and Wetland Systems Monitoring, Water Flows and Nutrient Fluxes to the Southwest Coast of Everglades National Park, Florida, and Everglades Depth Estimation Network project web pages.

Data release: USGS Data Series 105: Northeastern Florida Bay Estuarine Creek Data, Water Years 1996-2000.

As part of the South Florida Ecosystem Program, the U.S. Geological Survey, in collaboration with Everglades National Park, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the South Florida Water Management District, is conducting a study to measure flows into east Florida Bay. Information from this study will be used in conjunction with data from other studies to help determine the effects of changes in water deliveries to Everglades National Park on the Florida Bay ecosystem. Flow into Florida Bay is closely related to sediment transport, salinity, and chemical characteristics of the bay, which in turn, determine and interact with biological characteristics. Additionally, freshwater-inflow data will be used as input to hydrodynamic models of Florida Bay, for calibration of hydrologic models of the mainland, and for water-budget determinations for south Florida-all of which are essential elements for resource management and the ecosystem restoration.
