Description:
Abstract:
Models for the Eastern Oyster, Blue Crab, Sea Trout, Sea Grasses (Halodule and Thalassia) and a Freshwater Submerged Grass (Vallisneria) have been complete and are being used for the alternative selection. The Eastern Oyster, Blue Crab, and Sea Trout models have been submitted to and approved by the IMS. A modeling and habitat evaluation application to aid decision support has been completed. Inland models have been coded and tested with surrogate hydrological data. Four models have been produced: wading birds (ibis and wood stork), amphibian communities, aquatic fauna communities, and large mammal connectivity and roadkill risk. Additional hydrologic input for inland alternative runs of the ecological models will be supplied by the SFWMD. The inland modeling tools continue to be refined and expanded. Coastal models will continue to be modified and implemented.
Purpose:
The objectives of this project are to develop and apply forecasting models to evaluate the impacts of CERP projects on ecological attributes selected from the conceptual models as part of the SWFFS.

Process_Description:
Coastal/Estuarine Model Expansion: The current estuarine forecasting model will be expanded to include Estero Bay and will include all species appropriate for that region. Models will be calibrated and refined for Estero Bay and new documentation will be developed where necessary.
Process_Date: 2010
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Inland Forecasting Model calibration, refinement, and documentation: The HSI models hat make up the inland forecasting model will be evaluated, refined, calibrated, and verified using available scientific data and local scientific knowledge as hydrologic outpuet become available. HSI models will be documented in the accepted IMC format.
Process_Date: 2010
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Alternative Assessment: Restoration alternatives (project designs) will be evaluated using the ecological forecasting models. In addition, a 2000 base run and a 2050 without project run will be performed. This process inclues the capture of hydrologic data and the conversion of this data into a usable format. Modeled results will be delivered in an Excel format. In addition results will be integrated into a decision support system for further project alternative evaluation.
