The Everglades is a natural region of tropical wetlands in the southern portion of the U.S. state of Florida, comprising the southern half of a large drainage basin within the Neotropical ecosystem it forms is not presently found anywhere else on earth. The system begins near Orlando with the Kissimmee River, which discharges into the vast but shallow Lake nates: 26°00′N 80°42′W / °N . Everglades National Park is an American national park that protects the southern twenty percent of the original Everglades in park is the largest tropical wilderness in the United States, and the largest wilderness of any kind east of the Mississippi average of one million people visit the park each year. Everglades is the third-largest national park in the contiguous Location: Miami-Dade, Monroe, & Collier . Water quality data collected at inflows to Everglades National Park (ENP) are analyzed for trends using the seasonal Kendall test (Hirsch et al., ; Hirsch and Slack, ).   In , the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) began a study to gage several major creeks that discharge freshwater into northeastern Florida Bay. This study provides flow, salinity, and water-level data for model development and calibration and also provides baseline data for other physical, biological and chemical studies being conducted in the : Eduardo Patino.

The Everglades Landscape Model (ELM) (Fitz and Trimble, , Fitz et al., ), which imports part of its flow simulation from the South Florida Water Management Model (SFWMM) (South Florida Water Management District, ), simulates hydrology and water quality in a large area of South Florida including the Refuge but at a coarse resolution Cited by: Data available for the stations include: Alligator Creek stage & discharge 4/24/ - 9/30// East Creek stage & discharge 5/17/ - 9/30/ East Highway Creek stage & discharge 8/9/ - 9/30/ Jewfish Creek stage, surface & bottom temp, surface & bottom saliniity, discharge, filtered discharge 9/30/ - 9/30/ McCormick Creek. Water-quality data for selected national park units, southern and central Arizona and west-central New Mexico, water years and (USGS Open-File Report ) (*) Water-quality data for the Talkeetna River and four streams in National Parks, Cook Inlet basin, Alaska, (USGS Open-File Report ) (*). Overview & Objective(s): The project objectives are to: (1) determine the quantity, timing and distribution of freshwater flow through estuarine creeks into northeastern Florida Bay (Fig. 1); (2) for Everglades modelers, scientists, and managers, provide up to 31 days of real-time hydrologic data, provide published unit value data on the South.

age conditions, surface water and groundwater were relatively small components of the Everglades water inputs (see Table ; Harvey and McCormick, ).. The rainfall input is characterized by low ionic strength (median specific conductance of. Utilizing periphyton composition and water quality data obtained from long-term (15 years) monitoring programs, we developed, calibrated, and verified periphyton-based numerical models (transfer functions) that could be used to simultaneously assess multiple stressors affecting the Everglades peatland (e.g., salinity, nitrogen, and phosphorus).

The District also has additional environmental data in the form of electronic and hard copy maps with GIS coverages such as vegetation cover, land use, monitoring site locations, and surface.
