Summary:
The authors used Thiessen polygon analysis to estimate the direct rainfall inputs into the Shark River Slough, a primary drainage basin of the Everglades ecosystem within Everglades National Park, FL. Previous methods used to monitor precipitation in this region were reviewed. The authors compared data collected biweekly during a 22 month period (December 1977- September 1979) among rain gauge networks containing 87, 29, 11 and 3 gauges. These results were also compared with data collected daily at three long-term NOAA stations located on the periphery of the study area. A comparison between managed surface water inflows and uncontrolled precipitation contributions to the slough during this time was also made. Data from the three long-term NOAA stations were further used to compute a reconstruction of direct rainfall inputs into the slough on a monthly and yearly basis for the period 1952 to 1979.
