Title: Florida Cooperative Geologic Mapping Project

Description:
Abstract:
This project was designed to provide the framework for understanding (1) ecosystem variability and change prior to and during human development of South Florida (i.e., the detailed ecosystem history over the last 200 years, differentiating natural variability from man-made change) and (2) the resource distribution (primarily water and phosphate) in the subsurface of Florida (i.e., the detailed geology of constraining and resource units).

The overall strategy is is to: 1. Sample modern environments throughout the Greater Everglades Ecosystem to understand the present ecosystem and locate undisturbed shallow sediment cores to analyze ecosystem variability and change over the last few hundred years.

2. Analyze deep cores for sedimentology, diagenesis, biostratigraphy, paleoecology, and chemostratigraphy in transects across the southern Florida Peninsula to better understand the factors controlling ground water movement and to define aquifer characteristics. In order to understand the role of facies relationships and genetic depositional units in determining groundwater flow, the distribution and abundance of micro mollusks, foraminifers, dinocysts, ostracodes, pollen and spores, and charcoal will be analyzed, and strontium isotopes will be used for geochronology.

Purpose:
A multitude of water-related societal issues face southern Florida in the 1990's. These issues include the increasing demands for water for agriculture; business, and the rapidly growing population in the Naples and Miami area (Miami showing the fourth fastest growth rate in the U.S. in the 1980's), the recently mandated restoration of natural sheet flow through the Everglades ecosystem, the effects of runoff from agricultural and urban areas, and the vitality of the important fisheries of Florida Bay and Biscayne Bay. This project provides baselines for ecosystem variability and tracks the change in ecosystems through the last several hundred years to provide critical information for reasonable restoration targets to land planners and managers in southern Florida. In addition, it provides the geologic framework for the aquifers that supply water to the area.
Supplemental_Information: This project was completed in 1999.

Process_Description:
The overall work plan is is to:

1. Establish modern census sites and sample every six months for the duration of the project, provide yearly progress reports on the modern census data.

2. Analyze one to three undisturbed cores for each ecosystem history subproject yearly, provide summary report of core upon completion of analysis.

3. Drill numerous holes for analysis of the southwest Florida surficial aquifer system, analyze the cores.

4. Describe and analyze several long cores, with the Florida Geological Survey, for establishing the geologic framework of Florida.

5. Provide paleontological and isotopic support work (as SUPPORTMAP) for activities of the Geological Investigations Projects of the Florida Geological Survey which include: revision of the State Geologic Map and the State Geomorphic Map, surficial sediments and bedrock mapping of the western one-half of the Homestead 1: 100,000 quadrangle, surficial sediments and bedrock geology mapping of the Sarasota 1: 100,000 quadrangle, lithostratigraphic and biostratigraphic investigation of the proposed Okeechobee Formation, siliciclastic-carbonate transition in southern Florida and the Keys, hydrostratigraphic and lithostratigraphic characterization of Cenozoic sediments of the Southwest Florida Water Management District, and West Florida coastal estuarine sediment characterization studies.

Work planned for FY 1998 included:

1. Continue modern census sampling.

2. Complete final coring in the Taylor Slough region and collect a transect of cores across the northern part of Shark River Slough.

3. Develop a collecting and monitoring program with Biscayne Bay National Park of groundwaters entering Biscayne Bay and examine ecosystem history cores to determine the importance and change of groundwater contribution to the bay.

4. Complete analysis of Pass Key core.

5. Finish manuscripts on synthesis of results from cores and species analysis for SFWMD contract.

6. Continue drilling for surficial aquifer and "River of Sand" studies in Collier and Monroe Counties.

7. Complete manuscripts on Hilliard core, validity of the "River of Sand", and stratigraphic correlation of the shallow aquifer system of Collier County.
