Abstract

The purpose of this research is to assess the effects of increased movement of fresh water, nutrients, and organic matter from the C-111 canal on transitional wetlands of the ENP Panhandle. This will involve quantifying the processes and environmental controls that influence water and materials exchange between the canal and these wetlands. The purpose of this pilot study is to obtain data from a transect [that will be anchored at the western edge of the C-111 canal and will run south through the wetland transition zone to Florida Bay] before the C-111 canal levee has been removed, allowing the comparison of pre-removal data for all parameters.
