Data for the Comparison of Computed Flow Through Manually Operated Water Control Structures Using Theoretical Versus Calibrated Coefficients

Discharge through 13 water control structures in Florida was calculated using theoretical equations and coefficients and compared to USGS-published discharge from October 1, 2007 to September 30, 2019. The two daily mean discharges were not compared for any values below 10 cubic feet per second or if (1) any alterations were made to the published discharge to account for factors such as debris or

Radiometer data from LZ40 in Lake Okeechobee, Florida, 2021

A four-component (incoming and outgoing shortwave and longwave radiation) radiometer (model CNR1) was installed on a monitoring station (LZ40) constructed by the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) in the approximate center of Lake Okeechobee in Florida, located at 26 degrees 54 minutes 06.254 seconds North, 080 degrees 47 minutes 21.301 seconds West. Specific time-series collected for

MODFLOW simulator used to assess groundwater flow for the Whiting Field Naval Air Station, Milton FL

The study of Whiting Field Naval Air Station, Milton Florida requires numerical modeling of the groundwater system to determine the fate of contaminants released at the air station in previous decades. The MODFLOW-NWT modeling code (Niswonger and others, 2011) was applied for this purpose with field data defining a number of inputs including aquifer properties and timeseries. Lithologic logs were

Water Velocity Mapping of the L-67C Canal in support of the Decompartmentalization Physical Model (DPM)

The primary goal of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan is to restore natural water flow through the Everglades. An approach known as decompartmentalization, which involves the removal of levees, canals, and other barriers to flow, has been suggested to aid in the restoration. In the region known as Water Conservation Area 3 (WCA-3), the L-67A and L-67C canals and levees, which bisect WC

GIS shapefile and related summary data describing irrigated agricultural land use in Broward and Miami-Dade Counties, Florida for 2019

A Geographic Information System (GIS)? shapefile and summary tables of irrigated agricultural land-use are provided for Broward and Miami-Dade Counties, Florida compiled through a cooperative project between the U.S Geological Survey and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Office of Agricultural Water Policy. Information provided in the shapefile includes the locations in

Data Files for the Development of Regression Equations for the Estimation of the Magnitude and Frequency of Floods at Rural, Unregulated Gaged and Ungaged Streams in Puerto Rico through Water Year 2017 (ver. 1.1, September 2021)

Estimates of the magnitude of peak-flows were updated for the 50-, 20-, 10-, 4-, 2-, 1-, 0.5-, and 0.2-percent chance exceedance levels for 91 rural, unregulated streamgaging stations on the main island of Puerto Rico. These stations required 10 or more years of annual peak-flow record, using data to 2017, for inclusion in the study. The magnitude and frequency of floods at selected streamgages in

Evapotranspiration at the Clewiston Marsh Platform, Lake Okeechobee, Florida, June 15, 2017 - January 21, 2020

The dataset includes a table in comma delimited format of daily evapotranspiration (ET) from 6/15/2017 to 1/21/2020 from an ET station in wetlands along the western perimeter of Lake Okeechobee, near Clewiston, Florida. The dominant plant cover at the study site is sawgrass (Cladium jamaicense) with secondary amounts of cattails and open water surfaces such as canals for boat navigation. Sawgrass

Evapotranspiration within Blue Cypress Marsh, Indian River County, Florida, 2018 to 2020

The dataset includes a table in comma delimited format of daily evapotranspiration (ET) from 6/14/2018 to 12/31/2020 from an ET station within the Blue Cypress Marsh Conservation Area, within Indian River County, Florida. Evapotranspiration was estimated using eddy-covariance methods and missing records were gap-filled with a version of the Turc equation (Trajkovic and Kolakovic, 2009) that was re

Evaporation at LZ40 Platform, Lake Okeechobee, Palm Beach County, Florida, January 1, 2020 - December 31, 2020

Daily measurements of evaporation using the Bowen ratio method were made at USGS station name LZ40 (USGS site number 265405080472100), a platform-based station constructed by the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) at the approximate center of Lake Okeechobee, Florida. Meteorological and environmental variables were measured every 30 seconds and averaged at 15-minute resolution, includ

Data sets of actual evapotranspiration rates from 2000 to 2017 for basins in Florida and parts of Alabama and Georgia, calculated using the water-balance method, the bias-corrected Operational Simplified Surface Energy Balance (SSEBop) model, and the and

Annual actual evapotranspiration (ETa) rates in 55 basins in Florida and parts of Alabama and Georgia were evaluated for 2000–17 using the Operational Simplified Surface Energy Balance (SSEBop) model at about a one-square kilometer resolution (Sepúlveda, 2021). SSEBop ETa rates were bias corrected on the basis of ETa rates computed from weather observations at 24 micrometeorological e

Data Sets for Simulation of Migration of Injected Wastewater with High Levels of Ammonia in a Saline Aquifer in South Florida, using SEAWAT v 4

This data set provides the SEAWAT - version 4 model input files used to simulate the transport of the injected fresh wastewater with high levels of ammonia in a saline aquifer in south Florida, from January 1983 to December 2013. Initial conditions for January 1983 are calculated in subdirectory \model\unigrid_link where steady-state conditions are assumed. Files needed to simulate transient condi

Date for Methane gas ebullition dynamics from different wetland vegetation communities in Big Cypress National Preserve (Florida) are revealed using a multi-method, multi-scale approach

Methane emissions from peat soils are highly variable both in space and time and are influenced by changes in certain biogeochemical controls (i.e. organic matter availability; redox potential) and/or other environmental factors (i.e. soil temperature; water level). Consequently, hot spots (areas with disproportionally high emissions) in wetlands may develop where biogeochemical and environmental
