Description:
Abstract:
The Cape Sable area has experienced changes due to anthropomorphic effects since the early 1900's. Manmade canals combined with sea level rise, tropical storms, and hurricanes has led to the collapse of the formerly freshwater marsh and negative impacts on native fauna. This project will further document and expand upon the exchange of flow, salinity, and sediment by collecting continuous hydrologic and water quality data along the East Cape Extension Canal, Homestead Canal, and East Side Creek.
Purpose:
Objectives of the project are to:

1). Install and develop index velocity ratings to compute continuous flow to and from Lake Ingraham using acoustic Doppler current meters;
2). Conduct a minimum of two synoptic water quality studies per year (i.e. wet and dry season) to collect suspended sediment samples using automatic samplers;
3). Collect continuous 15 minute turbidity and acoustic backscatter data and during the water quality synoptic, relate suspended sediment concentrations to the surrogate variables;
4). Collect, store, and produce continuous sediment load record using surrogate variables;
5). Collect, compute, and publish continuous monitor data on the USGS SOFIA Website
Supplemental_Information:
This project is part of the National Park Service and U.S. Geological Survey (NPS/USGS) Water Quality Partnership Program.
