Abstract

The primary goal of this research is to assess how increased movement of fresh water, nutrients, and organic matter from the C-111 canal, due to hydrologic restoration of the southern Everglades, affects the transitional wetlands of the ENP Panhandle. A secondary goal is to assess how increased movement of fresh water, nutrients, and organic matter from the C-111 canal affects the northeastern portion of the Florida Bay estuary. Addressing these objectives will involve quantifying the processes and environmental controls that influence water and materials exchange between the canal, ENP Panhandles wetlands, and Florida Bay.
