Everglades Depth Estimation Network (EDEN)

In the early 2000s, USGS developed the Everglades Depth Estimation Network (EDEN) to provide water-level data for scientists, decision-makers, and managers to help monitor and assess Everglades restoration. EDEN is a real-time integrated network of 275 water-level gages, water-surface models, and applications that provides 400 x 400 meter gridded daily water-level data across the freshwater...

Potentiometric Surface of the Upper Floridan Aquifer in the St. Johns River Water Management District and Vicinity, Florida

Due to reduced funding, the May 2009 map will be the last publication of the Potentiometric Surface of the Upper Floridan Aquifer in the St. Johns River Water Management District and Vicinity, Florida unless additional funding sources are identified. Water-level elevations will still be measured semi-annually and published in the Annual Data Report as long as funding is available. The...

Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

Maps are an integral part of water-science activities and the Caribbean Florida Water Science Center utilizes and produces maps for all types of hydrologic projects and in information dissemination. Maps are also helpful for providing the user with a geographical reference to our water information.

Sedimentation Surveys in Puerto Rico

Reservoirs provide most of the water supply for Puerto Rico. Most of them were constructed in the early and middle 20th century and sediment accumulation has significantly reduced their original storage capacity.  The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has been conducting a series of bathymetric surveys using a global positioning system (GPS) and a geographic information system (GIS) technology on...

Caribbean-Florida Water Science Center Watercams for Florida

Webcams have been installed at several real-time stream-gaging sites. The webcams provide valuable information to the National Weather Service, emergency managers, and area residents to evaluate real-time conditions in river environments during storms. The visual record of flooding and other river events also provides valuable research data for the USGS. Many of these webcam installations are...
