Summary: This report summarizes many published and unpublished reports of water quality information in Everglades National Park, Biscayne National Park, and adjacent estuaries as the first step in the design, development, and implementation of a comprehensive monitoring system. Most of the data were collected in conjunction with short-term multi-disciplinary investigations. A total of 55 hydrographic studies were conducted dating from 1879 to the present,varying in duration from less than 1 year to over 5 years.
Summary: Twenty-three studies were conducted in Florida Bay; 17 in the Everglades estuary; 16 in southern Biscayne Bay; 14 in Card-Barnes Sound; 7 in the Big Cypress estuary; and 5 in the area of the northern coral reef tract. A summary of the water quality parameters minimum and maximum are discussed. The greatest variations in salinity, temperature, DO, pH, and turbidity occurred in Florida Bay.
